Funeral Planning

By preplanning your funeral, you ensure that your final wishes will be fulfilled. You are able to take your time and specifically choose every aspect of your funeral. This, in turn, takes the burden off your family at a time of grief and emotional stress. Preplanning is free of charge at Salmon and Sons Funeral Home and only takes about an hour.

There is no need to pre-pay, but the benefit of pre-paying for your funeral, is that the price is locked in and guaranteed; no matter how much the price of funerals goes up in the future. You can choose to pay in one lump sum, or in smaller increments over months or years. We are able to make a payment plan that works best for you.


If you have a change of heart after you have pre-payed for a funeral, you have 30 days to cancel it without penalty or fee. After the 30 days, the contract can still be cancelled but the funeral home will be able to charge an administration fee.


Salmon and Sons Funeral Home honours other firms contracts 100%. If you wish to transfer your prearrangement from another firm, please contact us by phone 403-381-0590 or email info@salmonandsons.ca to make an appointment.

Facing the end of life - a look at Kubler-Ross’ theories of coping with death and dying (part IV).


This month we look at the fourth stage of death and dying, according to Kubler-Ross. The fourth stage is depression.


At this stage, we may begin to withdraw from our regular routines, reduce our social contacts and isolate ourselves from those who care the most about us. We start to sense our pending loss and lack the strength to cope with what our future holds. As we enter deeper into depression, we may also grieve the end of our own life too. We start to look at our loved ones, our surroundings and our life’s work and realize we will not have it for much longer.


If we are able to get through the depression stage, we will finally move to the final stage; acceptance. We will look at acceptance next month as the final stage of this series on death and dying.
