When pre-planning a funeral, all of your wishes and desires are planned in advance. Your family will know what you want, and not what they think you want. At Roeder Mortuary, we’ll help you put in writing your wishes and desires. Having a plan will help avoid family disputes, or involvement by others who may not know what your wishes are. Your loved ones won’t question: “Did we do the right thing? Did we forget anything? Is this what she/he wanted? Did we spend too much?” All of that is eliminated because you put it in writing.

Pre-planning is the first step. Many forward-thinking people are considering ways to fund their funeral. Funding the funeral guarantees that the goods and services selected will be provided at the time of need. Pre-planning along with pre-funding work together because they offer peace of mind. Your survivors will not be burdened with decisions regarding your funeral.

Pre-planning allows you to confer with your loved ones and make your plans together, thus resolving your most personal matters with a clear mind, in a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. In return, you will save the people you care about most from the emotional turmoil and burdensome decisions that an unplanned funeral can often bring.

By making the decision to pre-pay now, you will lock in the cost of your funeral at today’s prices, even if you live for another 50 years. When you pre-arrange and pre-pay, you can be assured that definite arrangements have been made and no other financial decisions need to be faced. Roeder Mortuary puts 100% of any funds you give us into an insured Irrevocable Funeral Trust that is protected from Medicaid. We will return any excess funds from the trust when death occurs. No matter what the cost of fulfilling your last wishes at your time of need, pre-payment guarantees the cost will remain constant, regardless of inflation. In fact, since pre-paying ensures that you are protected against inflation, you can save thousands of dollars.
