Funeral and Memorial Services
All too often, families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly don’t want you to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process.
Create Healing Experiences
In the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be ‘easier’ to just take care of things as simply – and as quickly –as possible. But easier – especially in this circumstance – simply isn’t better. You must set the stage for the future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.
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 your loss with family and friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique meaningful ceremony to represent the genuine individuality of your loved one.
We offer families a beautiful setting in which to come together to honor your loved one. But, you may certainly choose to celebrate their 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.
If burial has been selected, this type of ceremony we design will involve creating a unique setting around the casket that will be present. You can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or memorial chapel. Or you may decide to have a graveside service to hold a service outdoors with minister and music provided. Whatever decision you make in for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected, we will help you with your fulfill those requests. We’re here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together and celebrate your loved one's life in a dignified and honorable way.
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. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service, because your need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to be cremated. The options we will provide for designing this type of service aren't limited. We hope that you will contact us to discuss the wide variety of celebratory options open to you.
You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over
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 their life. In the past, we have observed that some families have chosen not to have a ceremony, and were upset that they didn't. This is why we would like to emphasize the importance of a ceremony or a loving tribute dedicated to your love one. If you decide later to have a small, intimate memorial service, or if you decide to have something more elaborate, our staff is here to help you with creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of family and friends, in creating a memorable day that is a loving gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a truly priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
