The Gulf Island’s Only Independent Funeral Service since 1867

Pre-Planning Checklist

So, you're thinking about making your final arrangements? This checklist will help you make sure every detail is tended to.

The who, what, when, and where of your funeral

  • Prepare a list of people who should be contacted in case of a medical emergency or death
  • Write an obituary or write down information needed for an obituary
  • Decide where the obituary should appear
  • Choose the type of service you would like (burial or cremation)
  • Choose Your Details:
    • Cemetery lot location
    • Casket type/Cremation urn type
    • Vault/Sectional crypt
    • Type of service: religious, military, other
    • Your pallbearers
    • Your music selection
    • Your flowers
    • Readings at service and who will read them
  • Choose the charity, church, or organization you would like donations to be made to
  • Choose your funeral and visitation location

Now that you've figured out the details, it's time to make sure they're carried out. This list will help you assign responsibility for each task on the previous list.

Immediate Need

If you have immediate need of our services, we're available for you 24 hours a day.

Obituaries & Tributes

It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.

Pre-Arrangement

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?
