PreNeed and At-Need Funeral Planning

When it comes to your final arrangements, shouldn’t you make the decisions?

We can help you plan.

Pre-arranging your own service will help to ease the burden of your loved ones. It will also alleviate any questions, problems or differences, which can occur among family members.

Pre-payment will protect you from the rising cost of prices, and it will not be a financial burden on your loved ones.

Personal guidance

At Perazzo, our licensed Pre-Plan specialists are personally involved with each pre-arrangement. When allowing us to discuss pre-planning, you will be speaking with professionals who provide funeral services tailored to your specific needs. We can arrange for a confidential PrePlan conference, whether in person or on Zoom, at your convenience, with a member of our staff. There is no charge and no obligation for this meeting.

PrePlan allows you to make all of your final arrangements ahead of time—including payment—so that the people who love you won’t have to. PrePlan makes preplanning simple and safe. This is how it works:

  1. You meet with our funeral director.
  2. You select the funeral and merchandise of your choice.
  3. You receive a fully itemized statement and pre-need agreement.
  4. You give the funeral director your personal check.
  5. PrePlan funds are placed in FDIC-insured Certificates of Deposit. Each trust fund depositor is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
  6. You receive a deposit acknowledgment after the account has been opened.
  7. Upon completion of your funeral, PrePlan sends the payment to the funeral director.

"They made our family and friends feel at home and cared for us more than anyone expected. Their staff took photos of all the flowers and the gift cards so I could know what I was thanking people for. This was a great help. Everyone was very courteous and professional, but also compassionate."
