Traditional burial is a time honored choice for many families. A traditional burial may include interment in the ground or in a mausoleum. The process may take place with or without a funeral or memorial service. Many families prefer to help the healing and grieving process by including a funeral or service. There are many ways to add more personal meaning to a funeral or memorial service. Or staff will gladly assist you in creating a special memorial that may include personal items, treasured possessions, photos, video, and favorite music to personalize the service.
Today, many people chose cremation. There is no such thing as a "typical" cremation. We can help you choose from the many services that may accompany the cremation process.
Please ask about the beautiful and appropriate commemorative possibilities that accompany the cremation process.
Socializing after the funeral allows family and friends to support each other as they continue to deal with their loss. Many times families and friends travel distances to attend the services and find it helpful to have a meal or reception with the family prior to returning to their respective homes. If a family prefers not to hold a traditional service, a gathering that includes a reception, luncheon or dinner is still a warm gesture, and a healing event.
