Why Plan Ahead



Why Plan Ahead

Making funeral plans in advance is one of the best gifts for your loved ones. It helps to ensure that your final wishes are fulfilled, and allows for funds to be set aside, minimizing the financial burden for the family. 

We would be honored to help pre-plan this important event. Use the pre-planning checklist to help you begin the process, and design a special, unique service that reflects and celebrates the amazing life that was lived. 

It is Easy

Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.



You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.



Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.



Trust or Burial Life Insurance

Walnut Lawn Funral Home can provide both pre-need trust and burial insurance plans to safely protect your money for when the time comes. We can also help protect assests for a burial policy when faced with "spend down" for Medicaid eligibility for both whole life insurance policy and/or cash assets.



Trust or Burial Life Insurance

Walnut Lawn Funeral Home offers trust or burial life insurance to protect your asset.


What If I Move?

We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments, and they’re easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States.



Where Do I Start?

First, check out our preplanning checklist to help you consider all your possibilities. Then you can preplan online using our form to create your personalized arrangements or you can schedule a time to meet with our staff to discuss your options and make a plan.
