Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have to be Italian to be buried in the Italian Cemetery?

Why should I buy a property now when I am in good health?
There are several good reasons to make a pre-need arrangement. This type of purchase should not be left until the last moment.
Making the arrangement now means that you choose exactly what you want for yourself.
Planning now will lock in today’s prices and protect you from future price increases.
Once you make a pre-need arrangement with us, there will be no other charges at the time that the services and products will be needed.

If you have purchased property and you are making monthly payments and a death occurs, you may continue to make payments as per contract terms.
