Funerals serve an important purpose: they allow us to recognize a life that was lived and acknowledge that the life has come to an end. Funerals exist for the living, for survivors who suffer the loss of a loved one.
We understand that every family is different. Influences such as religious and cultural traditions, cost concerns and personal preferences make each funeral as unique as the person who is being honored. The following is an overview of the different types of services that we provide. Our funeral directors will discuss the many other options and details that make each of our services a personal, lasting tribute to your loved one.
A traditional funeral service includes:
- A viewing or visitation
- A formal funeral service (at the funeral home, local church or location of your choice)
- The necessary automotive equipment, such as a hearse to transport the body to the funeral site and cemetery.
- Floral tributes are often displayed and you are encouraged to bring in photographs and other memorabilia to further personalize the service.
- It is customary to purchase items such as a memorial register book, memorial folders and acknowledgment cards
