Commemorating the life of a loved one is an extremely emotional and personal experience. The most important thing is to create a farewell event that is meaningful and satisfying to you and others who will participate, and to establish a means of permanent memorialization that best suits your needs and your loved one's wishes.
Funeral directors are there to help you through this process - by asking and answering questions, taking care of necessary documents and details, and explaining the many options available for honoring and remembering a loved one in a meaningful way. You will make some important decisions about commemorating the life that was lived.
We offer a wide range of traditional burial services. We can tailor services to meet the needs of the family. We offer traditional services and graveside services. We also have a wide range of caskets and vaults.
Traditional Services normally consist of a funeral ceremony held at the funeral home chapel or church. At the conclusion of this service a committal service is held at the location where the deceased will be laid to rest. A visitation or viewing of the deceased is usually held the night before the funeral.
Graveside Services are similar to traditional services, except that there is no chapel or church service. Friends and family gather at the gravesite where the deceased will be laid to rest to hold services. The family has the option to hold a visitation or viewing of the deceased the night before.
Cremation is one of the alternatives to burial services. This type of disposition offers many types of alternatives from which the family can choose. You can choose cremation with traditional service, direct cremation with graveside service, direct cremation with memorial service, or direct cremation. We also have a wide range of urns and urn vaults for the family to choose from.
Cremation with Traditional Service consists of a funeral service held at a church or funeral home chapel followed by cremation. A visitation or viewing of the deceased may also be held the night before the funeral. A rental casket can be made available for the funeral service and visitation.
Direct Cremation with Graveside Service consists of an immediate cremation followed by a graveside committal service at the place where the decedent's remains will be laid to rest.
Direct Cremation with Memorial Service consists of an immediate cremation followed by a memorial service held at a church or other location chosen by the family.
Direct Cremation consists of an immediate cremation which would be followed by a memorial service at a later date.
