A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
Many people are now looking to preplan their funerals so that family members won't have to make stressful decisions or wonder what was desired in terms of arrangements.
Preplanning can take two forms. It can be as simple as recording wishes on paper, with copies left with the funeral home and a family member or executor. The other option involves setting aside the funding necessary to look after funeral expenses.
More and more people are paying in advance to ensure that there will be funds available to fulfill their wishes. The prepayment vehicle our funeral home uses is an insurance policy provided by FamilySide (you may know them as Purple Shield). Besides having the funding in place and immediately available, there are certain tax and portability advant
ages in using an insurance policy as opposed to savings accounts, GICs or trust accounts. If you want to know more about these advantages, contact us and we would be glad to explain them to you. Or, if you wish, you may contact the provincial FamilySide office at 1-800-661-8959 and they will put you in contact with their representative who serves our funeral home, Mr. Michael Penner.
The choice to preplan is a very personal one, as are the decisions you will be making. The best way to explain all your options in this regard is in person. If you would like to discuss this with us, without any obligation, feel free to contact us for an appointment. Or, if you would like to start the process on-line, we offer a pre-arrangement form on this web site.
