Most of us are not prepared to plan and carry out a funeral for someone we love. And so much of the information available on this critically important subject fails to focus on what is most important: having a personalized, meaningful gathering or service that helps families and friends begin the healing process of mourning after the death of someone we love.
Our dedicated and experienced staff are here to help you and can play a critical role in planning and carrying out a meaningful funeral, memorial service, or gathering. Our licensed funeral directors are intimately familiar with the funeral planning process, key decisions a grieving family must make, and the necessary legal documentation that is required during this difficult time. Our funeral professionals can handle all the details and help you create a unique service that meets your needs and values.
Funeral ceremonies can make a significant difference in how families channel their grief towards health and healing. During the event, the community comes together and responds to the reality that someone has died, and to the reality that those remaining will need support, compassion, love, hope, and understanding. The ceremony encourages you to think about the person who has died and to explore the meaning of their life and the ways in which they touched the lives of others.
Once you create your pre-plan with us, we store your final wishes and decisions as a record in our files. Your plan is easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States, so it can be used wherever you might choose to relocate. Ingram, Smith & Turner accepts transfers of policies from other locations as well. No matter where you live at the time of your passing, or which funeral home’s services you decide to use, we’ll make sure that your plan follows you there.
You can use the Pre-Planning Form on our website to begin creating your personalized arrangements or request an invitation to our Collaboration Center to create your own planning from home. You can also contact us at (405) 354-2533 to schedule a time to meet with Tim, Christy, Morgan, or Breanne to discuss your options and design your plan in person.
