You may have noticed, some funeral homes go looking for your business. We don’t because we don’t think it’s right.
We won’t solicit you for your business. You won’t find Gay & Ciha Funeral and Cremation Service behind an unwanted sales person calling you, knocking on your door or stuffing your mailbox to intimidate you to sign up and pre-plan your funeral today. Playing on your fears just doesn’t make good sense.
Pressuring you about when you need to plan for your funeral arrangements is not in your best interest. It is in the best interest of the salesperson trying to make their commission.
Did you know that the salesperson who solicits your pre-arrangement will not be there at the time of your death to be sure that the wishes you’d laid out and paid for are made?
Only a licensed funeral director can be. Wouldn’t it make more sense to work with the person that will be there at the time of death at the time you are making arrangements?
Our families come to us, and have been coming to us for nearly ninety years. We feel confident that you will decide to do this when the time is right for you and where you want to go. And we will be here then. Don’t feel bad if you’ve made pre-arrangements with a funeral home and are regretting the decision. You should know you can move your arrangements to a funeral home where you feel comfortable.
Think all funeral homes are the same? We invite you to compare the differences and see for yourself what so many families have discovered…
Why Should You Plan Ahead?
There are many good reasons to plan your service before your time of need… practical ones, like saving money by paying in advance with a payment plan…and emotional ones, such as making sure your choices regarding memorial services, music and other matters are carried out…and giving your family and loved ones the peace of mind they deserve.
The fact is, funeral prices have more than doubled in the past ten years. If you plan with us, we guarantee that the funeral arrangements you specify will be available without additional costs when the need arises.
Additionally, planning ahead saves your family the burden of having to make difficult decisions at the worst possible time. You don’t want your family to guess what kind of funeral service, or casket, or monument you prefer…and you don’t want to leave them with extra, unanticipated expenses.
Planning Ahead has other advantages, too:
- Guaranteed price
- Your personal wishes are carried out, even to the selection of the casket
- Tax free benefits
- It relieves your family of a financial burden
- Gives you peace of mind
- Feel free to look at our Advance Planning Packages, complete with payment plans for each individual package
Feel free to talk with either Dan or Adam Ciha, regarding planning ahead, both are professional funeral directors (not salesmen) and you’re under no obligation – the conversation is free. If you would like to begin the process of planning ahead, we have a pre-arrangement form you can download and fill out as much information as you would like. Then bring it with you and we’ll fill out the rest of the details.
