Our mission at Cantelmi Long Funeral Home is to ensure you and your family are well prepared, well protected, and well loved. Our Preneed Burial & Funeral insurance plans help prepare you for tomorrow so you can live better today. Advance funeral planning allows you to do more, worry less, and make every day better.
Preneed burial & funeral insurance funds a funeral service agreement between you and Cantelmi Long Funeral Home. You decide every element you want included in your funeral or burial service, which includes everything from the casket to the funeral flowers to transportation for the family. Our preneed funeral director totals the costs, and that amount is the basis for your preneed burial or funeral insurance policy.
Over time, inflation will cause funeral costs to increase. But a funeral contract combined with a Preneed insurance plan can offset inflation for the funeral or cremation services you include in your policy — essentially “locking in” the cost at today’s rate. You can either pay the amount in one installment or through monthly premium plans. Upon death, the funds are used to pay the funeral home for your funeral.
Preplanning a funeral or cremation service also allows you time to understand the process and make clear choices that are right for you and your loved ones. You can decide if you want a burial or cremation, select a casket or urn, and even prearrange incidentals at the ceremony like a lunch or special gathering.
Best of all, advance funeral planning makes the entire process easier for your family. Your wishes are spelled out clearly, so it eliminates all the guesswork. They won’t need to wonder what kind of service you wanted or whether you desired a burial vs. cremation. Every detail will be outlined in advance, so they won’t be overwhelmed with choices while grieving.
