Pre-Plan

Pre-planning a funeral allows you the opportunity to help family members make important decisions with huge financial implications. Pre-planning has become a standard practice that should be in the same category as making a will, buying life insurance and funding high education. Planning well for the future will allow you to make important financial decisions while also easing the burden on your family.

McWhite’s Funeral Home will help you with the entire process. Pre-need arrangements may include any or all of the following:

  • Providing funeral instructions
  • Recording vital statistics
  • Selecting merchandise and services
  • Establishing the method of payments

Grief Support

After losing a loved one, a funeral or memorial service is a positive first step in the grieving process. A service allows family and friends the opportunity to say their goodbyes at the same time, while sharing their strong feelings with one another and comforting each other in their mutual grief.

In the days, weeks and months after losing a loved one, people continue to need others to lean on for support, understanding, encouragement and guidance. There are many local and national groups formed for the purpose of providing a common place for people going through the grieving process. These organizations provide safe environments to express your emotions throughout each phase of grief.
