Plan for Tomorrow’s Funeral Needs Today

Funeral planning is an important part of end-of-life planning. Those with the foresight to plan and protect their families know that, in addition to creating a will and health care proxies, they should make a final plan for death care.

Create a final plan to:

  • State your wishes for a funeral service or cremation
  • Notify Heavenly Gate Funeral Home and Chapel of your wishes
  • Get a funeral price quote
  • Manage funeral expenses
  • Communicate your wishes to your family.

With a preplanned funeral, you protect your family. Your loved ones needn’t guess your wishes, or need to make plans while grieving. More importantly, your loved ones won’t be burdened with funeral expenses unexpectedly.

Funeral costs are substantial, and government benefits won’t put a dent in expenses. Social security benefits provide only $255 towards funeral expenses. At Heavenly Gate Funeral Home and Chapel, we offer death insurance to cover final expenses.

For only a few dollars per month, you can be sure your funeral costs are covered, and your family won’t be burdened. Learn more. Complete the form to the right for assistance.

Plan Your Midland Cremation

A Midland cremation is a popular choice for final needs because it is

  • Low cost
  • Easy
  • Flexible
  • A green burial alternative.

The Heavenly Gate Funeral Home and Chapel offers an affordable, dignified cremation service. Many families choose a simple cremation, also called direct cremation, to contain funeral costs or to respect the wishes of their loved one. Other families choose cremation with a funeral service or memorial service. Whichever you choose, it is important that you memorialize your loved one, and allow your family to go through the grieving process and heal.

Whenever possible plan cremation well in advance of an anticipated need. By preplanning cremation, you

  • Define your wish for cremation
  • Notify Heavenly Gate Funeral Home and Chapel of your choice for cremation
  • Arrange payment for cremation
  • Notify your family of your final plan.

To serve our community, we offer final expense insurance to cover the cost of cremation. With this death insurance policy, you pay only a few dollars a month to provide coverage of cremation costs at the time of death. Complete the form to the right.

Traditional Funeral Services. A traditional funeral service includes a viewing, a faith-based funeral, and, perhaps, a graveside service. At Heavenly Gate Funeral Home and Chapel, we customize each funeral to represent your family and faith, and meet the demands of your budget.

Alternative Funeral Services. Each Heavenly Gate Funeral is individually designed to represent you and your family. We are dedicated to creating meaningful memorials with the flexibility to create a green funeral, a theme-based funeral, or special services important to you.

Graveside Services. A ceremony may be planned graveside to pray for the deceased at the time of burial.

Midland Cremation. Cremation services are increasingly popular, and may be chosen as a sole service, or combined with a funeral or memorial service.

Memorial Services. A memorial service is less structured than a traditional funeral, and is often held to memorialize a loved one following cremation.
