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.


Funeral Services

Often one of the biggest choices when making funeral arrangements is deciding on what type of service you should have. There are many options to consider for what best fits the person and budget.

Traditional Funeral Service with Visitation and Burial includes public or private viewing of the deceased at the funeral home or elsewhere, a service either at the funeral home or elsewhere (such as a funeral mass or service at a church) and burial or entombment in a cemetery.

Traditional Funeral Service with Visitation and Cremation includes public or private viewing of the deceased at the funeral home or elsewhere, a service either at the funeral home or elsewhere (such as a funeral mass or service at a church) followed by cremation. The cremains can then either be buried in a cemetery, inurned in a columbarium, scattered or kept for later disposition.

Cremation with Memorial Service includes cremation followed at some time by a memorial service for the deceased with or without the cremains present. Cremains can then either be buried in a cemetery, inurned in a columbarium, scattered or kept for later disposition.

Direct Cremation is for cremation without any type of formal services. Cremains can then either be buried in a cemetery, inurned in a columbarium, scattered or kept for later disposition.

Direct Burial includes burial or entombment of the deceased in a cemetery without any visitation or service.

Graveside Services in most cases is a service at the cemetery following a traditional funeral service. There is also the option to combine graveside services with a direct cremation when the cremains are buried or to have a service at the grave with a direct burial.


Burial Services

If burial has been selected, usually any ceremonies we design revolve around the casket being present. You can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or memorial chapel. Or you could decide to have a more relaxed service, even in your family home.

Let’s just say this: there is no ‘hard and fast’ formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. We’re 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 Services

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. Again, the options are limited only by your imagination. 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

Some say it’s 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 their life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a truly priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
