A Funeral service fills several important needs in today's society. First of
all, it provides for the dignified and respectful care of the deceased. It's
a special tribute to a unique life. Equally important, the funeral service
helps survivors face the reality of death- the first big step toward
overcoming grief. Together, close friends and relatives can lend support and
consolation when they're needed most.
A funeral gives friends and relatives an opportunity to express the
love and respect they feel for someone who was important to them. Many times,
just seeing how much others cared can be a tremendous help to a family in
adjusting to thier loss.
Personalizing a funeral to reflect the life of the deceased can be
comforting to both family and friends. It makes the service unique and
requires participation, which can positively stimulate emotions.
Examples of personalization may be collecting photographs for a
collage, displaying beloved objects during visitation or services. Many of
the caskets we offer can be personalized to reflect the persons hobbies,
religious devotion, military service and more. We will work with you to
accommodate any special request that might add more meaning to the
Cremation it self is a mode of disposition as opposed to burial. We offer
cremation options from a direct cremation with no viewing, visitation or
religious rites, to a full service funeral, that may include a public or
private wake, a religious service followed by cremation. There are may
options and choices in planning a service with cremation.
As with a "traditional" funeral, cremation services can be personalized in
many of the same ways. Personal items displayed at the visitation,
personalized casket and urns. We would be happy to discuss any special
request or ideas you have to make the any service more meaningful.
