Give Your Loved Ones a Great Gift:
Lighten Their Load During a Time of Grief

We all plan ahead for life’s most important events—from birthday celebrations and weddings to baby showers and retirement. Unfortunately, many of us never get around to planning one of the most significant events of all: our final goodbye.

While it may not seem pleasant to think about your own funeral, planning ahead is a smart choice. Not only does it offer you peace of mind; it also ensures your family won’t be left to plan and pay for your funeral. What if they aren’t sure what you would have wanted? What if they end up arguing with each other over the details? What if they don’t have enough money to cover the costs?

Pre-planning offers the following priceless advantages:

  • Allows you and your family to make decisions together
  • Eliminates emotional overspending
  • Protects your family’s assets
  • Removes financial burden from your loved ones
  • Guarantees your wishes will be followed down to the smallest detail

It’s the Little Things…

Every time we sit down with the family of someone who had the foresight to make pre-arrangements we hear things like: “I am SO glad Dad thought to do this ahead of time–I don’t know where we would have found his discharge papers and all his biographical information on such short notice.”  or  “I’m happy Mom told you she wanted pink roses and white hydrangeas in her casket spray.  We had no idea those were her favorite flowers but it looks just like Mom!”

During a period of loss the little things mean a lot.  As tough as it is to think about your own funeral, focus on the extraordinary gift you are passing on to your family and friends.  Give them the opportunity to hold a service in your memory with more personalized details than they could have selected on their own.

By deciding on the details of your funeral now, you will save your family a lot of stress, heartache and financial burden later.

Your Pre-Planning Specialist
Will ensure everything is done right.

Snyder Funeral Home has distinctive staff members known as Pre-Planning Specialists.  They can help make the perfect pre-arrangements for yourself or a loved one and are happy to meet with you on your schedule. Because we have dedicated Pre-Planning Specialists, your pre-arrangements will never take a backseat to families who have experienced a loss.

Some folks prefer to pre-pay their planned services all at once, while some prefer to make payments over time, still others prefer to put their wishes on paper without paying at all.  Your Pre-Planning Specialist will guide you to make wise choices based on your individual situation.

We also promise an upbeat experience.  Making arrangements for someone who has passed away can be a sad appointment but planning your own funeral won’t have those same emotions.  Our Pre-Planning Specialists are easy to talk to and your appointment can last as long or as short as you’d like.

There is no ‘best’ time to plan a funeral…
But planning ahead is the ‘better’ time.

Planning or paying for final arrangements can seem like a daunting task.  Where do I start?  What paperwork do I need?  What kind of payments can I make?   How can I be sure Medicaid will accept these arrangements?  Your Pre-Planning Specialist has these answers and more.

They can even make suggestions on the ‘next steps’ in estate planning if you want.  Snyder Funeral Homes is not just in the funeral business; we’re in the business of serving people in our community.
