Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique.

BURIAL

Most people are familiar with the concept of burial, or "interment", but may not be aware of the variety of options that are often available. Many cemeteries offer:

  • Ground Burial: burial of the casket below ground.
  • Mausoleum: a large building that provides above-ground burial spaces, known as crypts, for entombment.
  • Private Family Mausoleum: a small structure that provides above-ground entombment of on average, two to twelve family members.
  • Private Family Estate: a small section of a cemetery, usually bordered by gates, shrubbery or other dividers, that allows for ground burial of several members of the same family.

GRAVESIDE SERVICE

As its name implies, a graveside service may be held at the grave site just prior to burial of a casket or urn, and usually consists of final remarks, prayers or memories. A graveside service may occur before, after, or in place of a traditional indoor service.

PRIVATE FAMILY VIEWING

Unlike a traditional visitation or “wake”, we offer families to have one more time to say “Goodbye” before we before the funeral service begins or the cremation process begins.

PUBLIC VIEWING / VISITATION

Some families prefer to have time for friends and family to come together to fellowship with one another. It is left up to each family whether they would like their loved one to be viewed or not.

MEMORIAL SERVICE

Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.

CREMATION

Many people overlook the importance of a cemetery property for those who choose cremation, but permanent placement of the ashes or "cremated remains" is an 

important part of the final arrangements. Just consider:

  • A permanent site gives loved ones a physical place for visitation and reflection.
  • The ceremony accompanying the placement of an urn in a cremation niche or a cremation    garden in a cemetery provides family and friends with closure after their loss.
  • When cremated remains of a loved one are kept
  • with relatives, they can easily become misplaced or discarded through the years. A permanent placement provides future generations with a location to visit.
  • Some common cemetery placement options for cremated remains are:
  • Columbarium: located within a mausoleum or chapel constructed of numerous niches designed to hold urns.
  • Cremation Garden: a dedicated section of a cemetery designed for the burial, scattering or other permanent placement of cremated remains.
  • Memorial Benches: benches that either simply memorialize a loved one scattered or buried in a cremation garden, or actually contain the remains within.
