FUNERAL SERVICE

A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, a funeral service to honor your loved one may be conducted. We are honored to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique. Many cultures and religions have special funeral traditions and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. This is a moment for you and your family and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.

MEMORIAL SERVICE

Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be conducted shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What is important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. A memorial service may be conducted at our funeral home, the final resting place or your place of choice.

TRADITIONAL BURIAL SERVICE

A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you may choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or your place of choice and a graveside service at a cemetery. You may choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.

VISITATION

Visitation (also called a "viewing", "wake" or "calling hours") allows family and friends to gather (with an open or closed casket) and gives everyone the opportunity to say goodbye and offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved. Some families even choose to only have a visitation and no formal service.

CREMATION SERVICES

Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you conduct a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You may keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where a service may be conducted. We’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony.

•Traditional funeral service followed by cremation - Many families choose to have a traditional casket viewing along with a funeral. After the service, the remains are cremated. It is your families’ decision as to the final resting place for the cremated remains, whether they be retained, scattered, or buried.

•Cremation with a memorial service - This option allows you to have the memorial service after the body has already been cremated. The service may be conducted around the urn or it may be scheduled at the convenience of all family members at a later time.

•Direct/Simple cremation - The body will be cremated and no services will be conducted. The funeral home staff will meet with the family, secure the paperwork and get the required signatures for the necessary documents. Your loved one will be cared for in refrigeration, during the process of filing the paperwork and receiving the permits. The ashes will be returned to the family after the cremation.

•Direct/Simple cremation with graveside service - The body will be cremated and then the family is able to gather at the cemetery for a service. The funeral home staff will meet with the family, secure the paperwork and get the required signatures for the necessary documents. Your loved one will be cared for in refrigeration, during the process of filing the paperwork and receiving the permits.
