Carter Funeral Home Pre-need

There are many ways to tailor a service that fits your specific needs. Our funeral directors or pre-need agents can assist you in selecting the proper choices.

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.
