Did you know?
Funeral Costs are rising an average of 7% to 10% a year and you can expect prices to double every 10 years. A Fixed-Price Advantage Funeral Plan is simply a way to take care of final expenses in advance – at a fixed amount to protect yourself against all future inflation. It is an accepted practice today to include an advance funeral plan of your family estate.

We agree in writing to provide complete funeral services as specified by you any time in the future with no additional cost, regardless of inflation or rising prices. Email us at for more information.

“We attended a luncheon to learn more. When we got home we decided we definitely needed to preplan, so we could make sure we wanted our wishes met and we could take that burden off of our children. With the funeral paid for and our wishes on paper we felt much better.” said Willie and Undine Lamm.
