Pre Plan Funeral Marietta

Gary Teate, Advanced Funeral Planning Counselor

Mayes Ward-Dobbins Funeral Home considers it an honor to serve your family and we believe in you making well informed decisions while at peace instead of a time of distress.  97% of our surveyed families decided it made the funeral process easier because their wishes were recorded at an earlier time.  We know the value in pre-planning and Gary Teate is our specialist when it comes to this process.

Gary believes in a no rush, no pressure environment when it comes to recording your wishes.  He will provide all the options that are available and help lead your family into making the best decisions in your own time frame.  One of the greatest gifts you can ever leave your family is your pre-arrangements.  This will alleviate all the hard decisions for your family and allow them to just concentrate on their grief.  The greatest gift that Gary provides is “Peace of Mind”.
