Planning Ahead

Find peace of mind with preplanning

Preplanning your funeral gives you the comfort of knowing your final wishes will be followed precisely. It also ensures that your loved ones won’t face the emotional and financial stress of planning a last minute funeral. Don’t leave your family with this heavy burden—trust Gray's West & Co. to handle all of your prearrangement needs. If you simply want to make your choices in advance and keep them on file at our funeral home, we are happy to provide this service at no charge to you. However, while preplanning your funeral is a smart choice, prepaying can be even more beneficial—especially for your surviving loved ones. By paying ahead, you will relieve your family from the financial stress of ever increasing funeral costs. Our expert staff can help you arrange a funding plan to ensure your funeral costs are covered when the time comes.

Protection of funds

When you choose to preplan and prepay, you are choosing to relieve your family from untold amounts of emotional and financial stress. By prepaying, you are placing your monies in a secure account. Because Oregon has the strongest preneed fund protection laws in the nation, Oregon consumers who prefund their funerals know they are fully protected. These laws, which funeral directors worked to put in place, require that such funds be deposited in an interest bearing trust account where the principal and interest remain the property of the consumer. At Gray's West & Co., our family offers price-guaranteed funeral plans that lock the funeral price in at today’s rates, eliminating the increasing costs of inflation. Your investment is still protected if you move or your death occurs away from home.
