Planning a Funeral
The funeral service is an important event for you, and for everyone else affected by the loss of your loved one. There are various things to consider when putting someone's final arrangements in place.
Which type of service will best help you and your loved ones heal?
Having loved ones around you at a difficult time is very important for the healing process. Whether you lean toward a traditional or customized memorial service with a visitation, or a contemporary service, our knowledgeable staff will help you settle on the right choices for you, your family and friends.
Our staff can help guide you in choosing a service that will help with remembering a life well lived. Having a funeral service that allows family and friends to share stories, memories and tributes will help in the healing process.
If you are choosing ground burial or entombment in a mausoleum crypt, you may want to have the casket present at the service. Many people choose to hold a viewing or visitation gathering prior to the service. Whichever option you choose, we will work with you to ensure that you have every opportunity to bring family and friends together to pay their final respects before the interment.
If you choose cremation, you can still have a traditional visitation and service, followed by cremation. Or you can have a memorial service following the cremation. Whichever option you choose, we are here to help. Whether you prefer a smaller gathering or a large event we have the experience and knowledge to help your family make the right decisions. Please contact us to learn about all of the options available to you.
We know funerals and you know your loved one. We will work together to create a personalized service.
We will give suggestions and ideas for personalized gatherings and funeral services, but we understand that the finer details will come from those who knew the deceased the best. If they were passionate about an organization, a hobby, or a sports team, their faith or their family, we can help incorporate that into the service. The possibilities are endless.
