Preplanning your own or a loved one’s funeral prior to death ensures that the arrangements will be carried out precisely according to your wishes. This also allows for you to be in control of the arrangements. This custom has become the preferred practice for many families.  By removing the need for stressful decision-making while grieving, preplanning relieves uncertainty and provides precious comfort during an emotional period.

At a time convenient for you, we meet to discuss all options and help you plan the ideal arrangements to meet your needs.  Your wishes are carefully documented in a pre-need contract to be precisely carried out by us when the time comes.

Preplanning may include, but does not require, prepayment.  If you decide to prepay, all of the Vertuccio & Smith Home for Funerals service charges are guaranteed not to increase.  You can rest assured that your prepaid contract will be properly handled in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Funeral Directors and Embalmers.  Please contact us to at the funeral home or email us to answer any questions you may have.
