is one of those years. The com-
pany’s efforts have the moral sup-
port of the Ohio DNR, but since it’s
privately-held and not open to the

The company’s philosophy is to
maintain ownership of its sites and
encourage other corporations to
follow its lead, Holt said.

“Now we create habitats and en-
hance new habitats,” Holt said.

The Montpelier site used to be
a dumping ground of broken con-
crete and other debris before the
decision was made to begin the res-
toration process. The site also had
two farm fields. “It was a mess,”
Holt said.

We Can Help You Pre-Plan Your Funeral

Navigating The Waters Of Funeral Trusts

What is preplanning a funeral?
Preplanning a funeral can save family and friends

from having to make difficult decisions. It also enables
people to choose their burial space, services and trans-
portation. Preplanning also allows people to pay for or
arrange payment for their funeral costs ahead of time.
According to Consumer Protection Ontario, a person
can pre-plan a funeral without prepaying. However,
many people prefer to have all financial components in
place as well for maximum convenience.

Our Family Serving What is a funeral trust?
Your Family Funeral trust can be a smart investment for people

412 W. Main St. who have not spelled out their wishes in a will or con-
Fayette, OH veyed them in writing to someone who will be manag-
ing their estate.
Funeral trusts may be referred to as revocable or ir- revocable. An irrevocable funeral trust, or IFT, is a tool
people who are facing the high cost of skilled nursing
care can consider. An IFT establishes an account into
which money for funeral expenses is deposited. The
money cannot be withdrawn or refunded, and funds
must be used for funeral expenses.

In the United States, an IFT is often considered an
eligible expense during the social services spend-down
process. That means the money deposited in the trust
is exempt as a countable asset from any financial look-
back period that helps determine eligibility for govern-
ment healthcare services, such as Medicaid.
