At Bekavac Funeral Home, we have been handling pre-planned and pre-paid funerals for many decades, and we have found only one major difficulty: planning a funeral in advance is something that many people do not want to face. Doing so confirms the fact that someday, they or someone they love, will die. This is, quite possibly, the most sobering and most difficult truth that a person must face in their life. However, preplanning and/or prepaying a funeral can be extremely beneficial for many reasons.
• Preplanning a funeral ensures that your wishes will be carried out exactly as you would want them.
• Preplanning a funeral relieves all burdens of planning from your family after you pass away. A funeral can be completely preplanned so that the only decision a survivor must make is which date would be best to conduct the viewing and services.
• Prepaying a funeral with Bekavac Funeral Home guarantees that all funeral expenses from our funeral home will be covered at the time of your death.
• Prepaying a funeral is an excluded asset when applying for government assistance programs such as Pennsylvania Department of Public Works Medical Assistance.
For these reasons, and many others, we would be happy to sit down with you to discuss preplanning options and answer any questions that you may have. Simply call any of our locations to schedule an appointment. This is often the greatest gift that you can give to your loved ones.
