Preplanning Checklist

Being Prepared.

Preplanning with Omps takes very little time, but requires a very good list. Any Omps funeral – burial or a cremation – needs a good checklist that starts at home and grows when you begin working with us.

When you plan ahead, plan on writing down any ideas or questions you have.
