Are you prepared to handle the responsibilities when a death happens in your family? Most people don't know what to do, and, just as unsettling, they don't know how to operate in the face of death. When death comes, you as a survivor, must not only cope with your grief, but at the same time organize a major event, the funeral, which usually carries great significance-not just emotional, but social and financial as well.


The topic of funerals is never easy to discuss, but advance planning can eliminate the burden to your family while ensuring that your wishes are met. Many families are choosing prearrangements because it compels you to organize important documents your survivors will need later and lets you choose the type of service and arrangements you desire.


If you have already preplanned and prepaid your funeral services elsewhere, you can change your service provider if you choose to do so.  Our funeral home accepts ALL pre-need plans.We offer prepaid funeral plans through FDLIC (Funeral Director's Life Insurance Company) of Abilene.  This option allows you to choose the best payment options for your, paying for services all at once or on a monthly payment plan.  The plan freezes the cost of the funeral and has no carrying charges or interest. Some plans are fully insured, providing full payment for the funeral from the first payment. Our staff will show you all of the options available in a no pressure situation, either at the funeral home or at your home. We have several agents to assist you in your plans.

Not all prearranged funerals are prepaid and it is not required to prepay a prearranged funeral. Some families simply wish to record their wishes and desires to help those left behind.
