Plan for the Inevitable…

Plan for the Inevitable…

Pre-planning your funeral should be a natural part of life, because it provides you with time to make end-of-life decisions in a calm and rational atmosphere. Start the online planning process now, or meet with one of our pre-planning advisors. It just makes sense.


In the movie "Memorial Day" young Kyle Vogle confronts his taciturn grandfather with this question as he seeks to deepen his relationship and satisfy his curiosity about a mysterious trunk he found in the barn. The end result: his grandfather relents and we learn his story. In the movie, it turns out (unbeknownst to his family and friends) that he is a war hero. The telling of the hidden story...the expression of his life...also leads to the healing of Grandpa’s relationship with his son, Kyle’s father.

Blaise Pascal once wrote: "No one dies so poor that he leaves nothing behind." That wisdom is often discounted as people reflect on their lives and fail to recognize the subtle but deep impact they have had. Every life has a story. Too often that story remains untold because no one took the time to draw it out. Perhaps, to us, it is unimportant. But it is of vital importance to those who love us...whose lives we have impacted. They want to know what to remember. They want to be sure that others remember.

We invite you to take a journey of discovery. It may be a journey about yourself. Or, it could be a journey about someone you care about. Perhaps you have been asked to deliver a eulogy. Maybe you are wondering how you will be eulogized...or, more important, how you can influence how you are remembered.

We’re here to help you capture your legacy - those memories so important to your loved ones.  You may also wish to discuss meaningful ideas for your own funeral or memorial experience that uses those recollections to help family and friends remember you and heal after you’re gone.

Our lives are like ripples in a pond. A seemingly insignificant pebble eventually can have an impact on everything around it.

    Medicaid Eligibility

    Perhaps no other area of planning is more misunderstood than the potential need and eligibility for Medicaid. Too often individuals invest in small life insurance policies thinking they are going to be providing for their funeral, when in reality those policies may have to be cashed in at some future date due to Medicaid restrictions.
