An estate plan should be a coordinated set of documents that fills a variety of needs. In addition to distributing your assets, you can also include funeral and burial arrangements.

The right estate plan is all about your priorities. It is an extremely customized plan that addresses what is important to you. If you have specific arrangements in mind for your funeral, be sure to include them in your estate plan.

Peace for your loved ones
