Pre-arranging can be as simple as telling the
funeral director what your funeral service will consist of. It
provides peace of mind that all of your considerations have been
addressed, and that all of your wishes and decisions will be fulfilled.
This relieves family members and friends of difficult burdens
during a sensitive time.
a pre-arrangement, the cost of the funeral is determined based
on the service, merchandise, cemetery fees, and any other applicable
charges from a church, organist, soloist, or newspaper obituary.
By placing the funds in a funeral escrow trust fund at your local
bank, the interest earned on your trust offsets any inflationary
costs associated with the passing of time.
Many families pre-arrange and pre-fund their funeral arrangements
when a loved one is applying for government assistance and is
spending down to qualify for Medicaid payments for a nursing home.
At the W. Raymond Watson Funeral Home, we provide pre-planning
programs offering security, peace of mind, and personal needs
which will always be honored.
