Planning Today, Not Tomorrow...
Together, Not Alone...
The subject of funerals is never easy to discuss for anyone. Arranging a funeral in advance can be a worthwhile experience in light of the impact your own death will have on those you love the most.
If you would like to begin a Pre-Planned funeral for either yourself or a family member, you may at any time speak with James Huf by calling 1-800-DONOHUE.
Pre-Planned funerals can also be arranged
online from our website.

Many individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange
and prefund their funerals before the need arises. Every year, more
than one million people plan and fund their funerals ahead of time,
and it's estimated
this number will grow as the population ages. By the year 2020, the number of people 50+ will grow by nearly 70%. As people age, they become more aware of the advantages of funeral planning.
The advantages of planning your funeral make sense.
Making It Easier For Those You Love

- Relieves your loved ones unnecessary concern

The Donohue family funeral directors/pre-need counselors believe it's
extremely important for people to take a little time out of their busy
schedules to examine and consider the remarkable benefits of advance
funeral planning. If you do this, you'll experience the tremendous emotional
benefits that our program provides. It makes everything truly easier
for those you love.
Planning Now For Your Family's
Needs Of Tomorrow
To plan ahead for your funeral, you simply meet with a Donohue family
director/pre-need counselor who offers caring, professional and personal
help in selecting the services, tributes and merchandise you desire.
Once you've made your decision, your funeral director/counselor will
help you put it in writing, so there will be no doubt about your wishes.
Family and friends will never have to wonder if they have done the right
thing, if they've paid too much or too little, if they've forgotten
anything, or if what they select is what you truly would have wanted.
