O f all the ways one can express love, one of the most thoughtful involves funeral planning before the need arises. It’s not always an easy thing to talk about, but who wouldn’t want to take the needed steps to spare those they love unnecessary hardship and complication?
Preneed arrangements can be as little as telling us what you want and placing your wishes on file. Having your wishes and biographical information provided by you means that everything will be correct and your wishes will be carried out. Prepayment is not necessary for prearrangement, but there are definite advantages to prepaying if you are able.
Although the average funeral with burial or cremation cost much less today than many people expect...surely it will cost much more in the future. Who knows if inflation will rise more rapidly in the future than in the past? When one must live on a fixed income, any additional cost can be significant.
By planning your final arrangements with the funeral planning professionals at Heald Funeral Home, you know:
* Your loved ones will be relieved of burden at a time of high stress.
* Your final arrangements will reflect your expressed wishes.
* Your final arrangements need not be a financial burden on your family.
If you are able to pay the entire cost of your chosen arrangements at today’s prices, we will guarantee those arrangements at no further cost, if no changes are made. To guarantee that your money is safe, it is placed in a trust account for you alone, with Interment Trust Services, sponsored by The Vermont Funeral Directors Association. If you would like more information on Interment Trust Services, please go to Recommended Links and look for ITS under pre-planning.
With the above method of funding your final arrangements you are easily able to be changed to another funeral service provider if you wish, or if you relocate. If you only winter in a warmer area, don’t be concerned, we can make all of the necessary arrangements to have you brought back home, and carry out your wishes. It is to your advantage financially, if you do not contract with a funeral home in the area where you spend the winter. Let us handle that for you.
