When it comes to your final arrangements, shouldn't you make the decisions? The arrangements you make will reflect your exact wishes and desires. Pre-arranging your own service will help to ease the burden on your loved ones. It will also alleviate any questions, problems or differences, which can occur among family members.

Pre-payment will protect you from rising costs, and it will not be a financial burden on your loved ones. When you plan ahead you know that your wishes will be fulfilled.

Some cemeteries also offer pre-payment of opening / closing charges, which we recommend as an additional way to protect from future price increases.

Please contact us if you would like to make an appointment to discuss pre-arrangement. There is no cost or pressure to commit. It can be informational only if you wish. We can also come to you to meet if that is more convenient.  

We are also one of the few Worcester area funeral homes that provides a complete copy of our price lists directly on our website.  They are available to view or print at this link - General Price List

Rice Funeral Home now gives you the option of planning funerals partially or completely online in the convenience of your own home.  A funeral is a difficult event to plan, and it can be overwhelming. Our online funeral arrangement process allows you to make decisions at your own pace. If at ay time you have questions we are always here to help, and there are no extra charges for making or completing arrangements in-person.

Have the Talk of a Lifetime

What is the Talk of a Lifetime?

The Talk of a Lifetime is a deep conversation that challenges you to really think about your life’s priorities. What are your goals? What are your proudest moments in life? How do you want to be remembered after you are gone? As you speak about these important questions with your loved ones, you develop a deeper sense of their legacy – and your own as well!  

How Will This Benefit Me and My Family?

While some people feel uncomfortable thinking about life and death, the Talk of a Lifetime is a stress-free way to discuss your legacy. Speaking about these issues openly and honestly can be a huge asset for your family. Plus, you can go at your own pace. Maybe you’d like to share a story about your favorite role model, so you can pass their advice to the next generation. Maybe you have specific wishes for memorialization after you are gone. No matter what you hope to express, the Talk of a Lifetime is the perfect venue for communication.
