Funeral and Memorial Services
Some believe that it is easier not to have a memorial service or funeral and it is often thought to be a less-expensive alternative. But ... an easy, cheaper path is not always the better one. Grief experts all agree: a ceremony is an important part of the healing process. That said, the important thing to remember is that you can
personalize a service to fit your family's desires, customs, and budget.
Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation; whether you select a formal funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, the need for acknowledgment of the loss with family and friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one.
We offer families beautiful settings in which to come together to honor your loved one. But, you may certainly choose to celebrate his or her life in a more unique setting. No matter where you decide to gather together, such a service will make a difference in the lives of all who attend. Your funeral director will work with you to make the important decisions to create a loving tribute that starts the healing process.
If a funeral service with a burial has been selected, you may choose to include visitation hours with a funeral service in a place of worship or in our memorial chapel. Or you can decide to have a memorial service without calling hours. There is no "hard and fast" formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been chosen. Were here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together before your loved one's interment in the cemetery
of your choice.
Cremation only refers to the manner in which you or your loved one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. We want you to know that this decision doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. The need for the healing experience of a funeral with or without a viewing or a memorial service is not lessened by the decision to be cremated. Options are limited only by your imagination. We are here to assist in advising you of the wide variety of celebratory options open to you.
You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over
It may seem harsh to remind you of this, but we know we must. We want you to honor your loved one in a way that allows you to look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor his or her life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who were touched by this life is a gift to everyone involved -- a gift of memories, a gift of healing -- a truly priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
