Funerals are events of significance in our society. They acknowledge the finality of death. At a funeral, guests are able to pay their final respects to the departed and find strength, comfort and support. While assembling together in honor of the loved one, they can share memories of him or her that they cherish. A funeral celebrates the relationships that the deceased had. It also presents the opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of the departed. A funeral provides an environment where family and friends can properly mourn and begin the healing process.
We offer comprehensive funeral services, complete with a viewing, funeral and the interment of the physical remains. The viewing or visitation may be a private affair for family only, or open to the public. After this, we will organize the funeral, and the service usually takes place in a place of religious worship or at our peaceful facilities. Finally, we arrange for the earth or above ground burial of the casketed remains.
For burial services, we have a wide range of caskets available in different colors, materials, designs and prices. We will assist you in selecting one that suits your tastes and your budget. We will also help you to find a grave liner or burial vault which most modern cemeteries require. We offer the graveside service, which is a simple and respectful ceremony that takes place at the burial site with friends and family in attendance.
In addition, we offer the complete cremation service. It is identical to our traditional funeral service described above except that a cremation follows the funeral rather than interment and the loved one is placed in either a cremation casket or a rental casket. We offer immediate cremation, as well. It is most often followed by a memorial gathering at a church, funeral home or in a more unique setting such as a favorite restaurant, park, beach or hall. Our direct cremation service includes the removal of your loved one from the place of death and their transfer into our care. A viewing or funeral service is not included in this package.
We encourage you to pre-plan your funeral because it provides numerous emotional and financial benefits. It allows you more time to research and think about your options so that you can make well-informed and unrushed decisions. Your surviving family members will have fewer responsibilities in the event of your death since you will have made your preferences clear. They will not have to guess about what you would have wanted. Pre-funding your funeral plan locks in today’s prices so you do not need to worry about the effects of inflation. When you pre-pay, your estate is unaffected by your funeral expenses, allowing more of your assets to go to your family.
