Why Plan Ahead

Why Plan Ahead

The caring staff at Joseph W. Jones Funeral Home is here to assist you and your family in deciding on your final arrangements. In sitting down and expressing your wishes you are able to let your family know exactly what type of services you want when that time does come. Often, these wishes aren’t expressed in life, leaving the family wondering if they are making the right decision for their loved one. To be certain that your wishes are followed through and to take the emotional burden of deciding off of your family we encourage you to come in and sit down with one of our highly trained staff members to cover all of the necessary details.

We also offer the ability for families to plan online using our new Online Planner. Plan arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your own home. Plan Online Now.

It's Easy

Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.

You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.

Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.

You Can Prepay

Prepayment generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. We deposit all prepayments into a trust fund where it remains until needed. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes.

What If I Move?

We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments, and they’re easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States.

Where Do I Start?

First, check out our preplanning checklist to help you consider all your possibilities. Then you can preplan online using our form to create your personalized arrangements or you can schedule a time to meet with our staff to discuss your options and make a plan.
