Scott Prine, Manager

We are considered essential services and are open. Although I think people would rather not have to use our services! That being said, we’ve had a spike in people asking for preplanning information and we are getting that out as quickly as we can. All mortuaries are open as well. We’ve posted a notice on our website explaining the extra steps we are taking for the safety of the families we serve and our staff.

Nancy Kaufhold – PrePlanning Advisor Ces. Lic# 44526
Singing Hills Memorial Park has remained open as an essential business. Many people are inquiring about pre-arranging which is and always had been a very smart and wise thing to do.  As a PrePlanning Advisor, I educate individuals and families about their options and the important decisions that need to be made, and your ability to arrange these options ahead of time, before a death occurs.  Previously, I worked 8 year helping families make final arrangements at the time a loved one passed away. Time and again I witnessed the huge emotional and financial stress to the families of those who did not have any arrangements made ahead of time.  This emotional and financial stress the families went through on top of losing someone was extremely unbearable for them, and made me so sad to see.  Fortunately there is a much better way! Planning ahead protects you and your loved, provides comfort to your loved ones to know your wishes, freezes the cost at today’s rates and gives everyone much needed peace of mind.  Currently, I also can give a Zoom presentation on this, to you and your family if you would like.😊  I also work with business owners and their employees. Most businesses look at is as an extra benefit for their employees. I give an informative zoom presentation about Preplanning and answer questions.  Please contact me to set up a time to give a presentation, even via zoom.  I will provide each employee and yourself a free Preplanning Guide, a valuable tool, that once filled out answers about 90% of the questions that arise when a death occurs.  And I will offer a substantial financial savings to each employee on behalf of your company.  I will also provide this same gift and substantial savings to all who contact me at during this most challenging time.  So please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will help make the difficult conversation easy.  And I welcome questions. Nancy.
