Pre Planning | Trimble Funeral Home & Crematory

Pre Planning

Plan for peace of mind.

Make your choices now, so they don’t fall to your family later.

Pre-planning is determining the details of your funeral and cemetery services in advance. To some, this may sound like a difficult conversation. But putting a plan in place is actually a smart and caring thing to do. With a plan, you’ll reduce stress for grieving loved ones—and simply let them honor and celebrate your life, knowing things are happening just as you wanted. All your wishes. All with ease.
