No one likes to think about death, let alone plan for it. By pre-planning your funeral, you relieve your family of having to make important financial decisions during a period of great stress and grief. At this time when people aren't thinking very clearly your family may not know what to do because you never made your wishes known.

Pre-planning your funeral can be very informal, and as simple as jotting down your preferences and sharing your wishes with a family member. More formal arrangements in the form of a pre-need contract can be established through the funeral home and can be pre-funded through life insurance, annuity, or other methods.

We at Carter Funeral Home encourage all in our community to take time aside with your loved ones and share with them the way you would like to be memorialized through your funeral service. When you are ready to take the step of writing your information down, call the funeral home and we'll be glad to assist you through this.

These prices are effective October 1, 2011 but are subject to change
without notice.

The goods and services shown below are those we can provide to our customers. You may choose only the items you desire. However, any funeral arrangements you select will include a charge for our basic services and overhead. If legal or other requirements mean you must buy any items you did not specifically ask for, we will explain the reason in writing on the statement we provide describing the funeral goods and services you selected.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
Basic Services of Funeral Directors, Staff, and overhead........................ $ 725.00
Our basic service charge includes, but is not limited to, staff to respond to initial request for service; arrangement conference with family or responsible party; preparation and filing of necessary certificates and permits; placement of obituary notices; planning of funeral arrangements; and coordination of service with cemetery, crematory, vault companies and others as required. In addition, this fee includes a proportionate share of our basic overhead costs.

This fee for our basic services and overhead will be added to the total cost of the funeral arrangements you select. (This fee is already included in our charges for direct cremations, immediate burials, and forwarding or receiving remains.)

Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing.
