Burial Pre-Arrangements
Making arrangements for a burial in advance should be no more difficult than providing insurance or having a will.  It is a sensible thing to do.  By pre-arranging your burial, you can avoid the unnecessary confusion plus the financial and emotional stress that death often brings.

Funeral pre-arrangements are available and recommended with guarantees of no increase in cemetery charges at the time of interment.  Pre-Arrangement Funds are placed in a separate account and are withdrawn at the time of the interment. An interest free Time-Payment Plan is available for your convenience.
