Plan for Tomorrow’s Funeral Needs Today

Plan ahead for a funeral or cremation to:

  • Define your final plan and choose the best funeral for you
  • Save money on final expenses
  • Spare your family the burden of planning and payment.

The Nieto Funeral Home & Crematory believes one of the best things we can do for our family is to take care of them. With a preplanned funeral, your loved ones needn’t plan or pay for a funeral. This is important when today’s funeral and burial costs exceed $10,000, on average, nationwide. Social security and veteran benefits cover just a few dollars and only special services.

Funeral and cremation costs must be covered with a lump sum payment. To reduce the financial burden, Nieto offers death insurance coverage. With final expense insurance, you pay only a few dollars a month today to cover the cost of a funeral tomorrow. We know of no better way to ensure funeral costs are paid.

Cremation is increasingly chosen for final needs due to its:

  • Low cost
  • Flexibility

  • And as a green burial alternative.

Laredo cremation services may be combined with viewing, a funeral, or a memorial service. We also plan simple cremations with no other services. No matter what your wishes, the Nieto Funeral Home & Crematory will always work with your loved one and your family with dignity, professionalism, and compassion.
