We care for the deceased, honor a life passed, and support those who mourn. A funeral is for the living, giving those left behind an opportunity to grieve, to accept the loss and to find closure. A funeral is an important part of the healing process.
We can help you decide how to remember and honor your loved one—or how you would like to be remembered. We can help organize a fitting tribute that reflects a unique life and individual passions.
The form of a funeral or memorial service can be individualized to include:
- Memorial Service
- Graveside Service
- Chapel Service
- Church Service
- Committal Service
- Special Gatherings
No matter how you choose to remember, you have many options when planning a service, including:
Time and Place
A funeral or memorial service can take place at any time and can usually be held in the location of your choosing. A service can be held, not only immediately following a death, but also at a later designated date or as an annual event of remembrance.
A funeral can be as simple or elaborate as you wish. The things that had meaning to your loved one will also give meaning to the people who attend the service. Sharing memories with others can be as simple as:
- Playing a special song or telling a personal story.
- Displaying photos.
- Showcasing items from a favorite hobby.
We will work with you to help plan a funeral, memorial service or gathering that reflects your family's wishes and honors the spirit of your life or the life of the person who was so special to you.
One of the first questions that needs to be answered is how is the body is to be handled.
