Bates Family Funeral Home Pre-Planning
Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.
Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to plan their own arrangements.
Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.
Funeral arrangements are a personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.
When you finalize your plan, we will advise you of the total cost. You do not have to pre-pay or pre-finance your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral prices. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your surviving family of an unexpected expense.
If you would like to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional, please contact us at (903) 667-2009 to set up an appointment. We would be honored to assist you.
