Why Plan Ahead?


It allows you the time to consider all of your options

When we sit with families, we often hear the phrase “I never knew you could do that!” Pre-Planning gives you the opportunity to learn about your options.


Informed decisions can be made

Knowledge is power. Pre-Planning gives you the luxury of knowing your options and weighing the decisions that are best for you and your family – without the shock that follows a loss.


Your family will know what your wishes are

Another phrase we hear frequently: “What do you think he would have wanted?” or “Mom was never willing to talk about this.” We know it’s hard to think about your own death and funeral, but sharing your wishes with your family allows them to focus on their feelings instead of making tough decisions.

Gives you an idea of what the total cost will be

Just like any other financial investment, it is beneficial to know what your desired wishes will cost. Knowing the cost of your selected services will help you make decisions about how to pay for it. You may have life insurance that will cover your expenses, or you may want to obtain information on pre-funding your funeral.


It’s free

Pre-planning appointments are always free with Goss Funeral Services. We would love to have the opportunity to meet with you in person so you can meet our staff and see our facilities.
