“I have prepared a place for you...” John 14: 3
Believing as Christians that Christ has prepared a place for us in the heavens of eternal life, so we should prepare for ourselves, an earthly place in the face of our mortality...
Pre-Arrangement Means Now!
THE IMPORTANCE OF PRE-PLANNING:
Every day we pre-arrange for our daily living: we take pride in our living arrangements, our homes, our apartments, we open bank accounts for the handling of our finances, and we purchase insurances for our health care, and our very lives, so that family members are relieved of these very important liabilities. We must therefore, prepare for our end of life concerns.
THE GIFT OF PRE-ARRANGEMENT:How many times has it been said in regard to burial arrangements: “I wish to take care of these things so that my children will not have to?” Parents, who have always taken care of their children, do so again when they pre-arrange their own funeral services and burials.
PEACE OF MIND DECISIONS/FINANCIAL BENEFIT:
A pre-need purchase for in-ground interment (either traditional burial or for cremation), above-ground entombment into a mausoleum or inurnment into a columbarium (cremation), allows one to make those choices ahead of time, taking into consideration all the above options, and being able to secure those choices calmly and prudently, at more economical pricing as compared to the increased pricings of these same options in the foreseeable future.
PRE-ARRANGED INTERMENT OPTIONS:
- GRAVES: For traditional burial or cremation, with a family choice of a lawn level “bronze on granite” marker. Requirement: a concrete box or vault for traditional burial. An urn vault for cremation.
- MAUSOLEUM CRYPT: For above-ground entombment, with a “bronze” nameplate (monobar). Requirement: Prefer a metal, unsealing casket. Cemetery provides a crypt tray.
- COLUMBARIUM NICHE: For cremation, with a “bronze” niche plate. Requirement: Specified Urn size.
- CHAPEL FLOOR CRYPTS: For traditional entombment below our chapel floor with a floor engraving of name and dates. Requirement: None
