From the onset of our meeting, through to the last details, no one in the Stamford area provides the level of care and experience you and your loved ones can count on in your family’s time of need. You will find “Lacerenza’s” to be your family’s funeral home of choice, and a dependable, trustworthy resource to your family throughout the needs of a lifetime.
Nationwide, over 50% of funerals today are cremations. And the percentage is expected to increase over the next decade.
At “Lacerenza’s”, we understand that no two funerals are alike. That, even with cremation, our client families have options they may or may not be aware of.
From simple, low-cost direct cremations and immediate burials; to more traditional visitations followed by cremation; to cremations that include visitations, church or cemetery memorial services before interment, the licensed staff at Lacerenza Funeral Home will arrange for all permits and assist your family in every aspect of the process. We provide our client families with a wide range of cremation options, urns and services in and out of our facility, as well as extensive resources our families can depend upon.
For decades, people have made pre-arrangements for their own funerals and those of their loved ones.
But why? The reasons are really quite simple. By taking the guesswork out of the process of planning a funeral at what is a most difficult time, discerning clients are able to record exactly what their wishes are, while financially planning for this inevitability.
Financial assets are placed in a trust that is revocable or irrevocable, depending on the wishes of the contract holder. These may be paid over time, or in one lump sum. Exact details are recorded, along with the wishes of those making the arrangements. The burden is lifted from survivors, and the resources allocated well in advance of the need.
At Lacerenza’s, we have successfully written thousands of pre-need contracts over the nearly ninety years of our service to the community. Let our experienced and licensed directors meet with you and your family, to create a program that will serve your family and your wishes well, at that very time of need.
