We strongly encourage pre-planning which will relieve your loved ones from making difficult decisions while grieving and will ensure that your stewardship values will be carried out when the time comes. You may want to talk with your family about their desired and comfortable level of involvement.

Qualified staff at a funeral home, someone in the growing field of death midwifery, clergy, and the staff at The Meadow are all good resources who can help you in your decision-making processes.

You can make an appointment at The Meadow to discuss preplanning by calling 540-460-4180.
