Funeral Service Options
Family and friends gathering together to honor a loved one’s life is one of the most important steps in the grieving and healing process.  You may opt to have a traditional religious service, military service, or as some families choose a non-traditional ‘life celebration’.
With your choices in mind, many decisions will remain to be made regarding your funeral arrangements such as where your funeral service or celebration of life will be held, the choice of a casket or urn, who the pallbearers will be and who to call upon to officiate (a member of the clergy or a celebrant) at the service.
With your decisions in mind, your family will be grateful for the guidance as they prepare for your service or celebration of life.  As always, we are here to help create a unique and memorable service that people will remember fondly for years to come. Contact us to discuss your needs.

Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation period, followed by a funeral service in a church, our chapel or other place of worship.  The casket is typically present at both these events, and it is your decision on whether to have the casket open or closed.  You have the option of having the remains interred (earth burial), or it may be entombed in a crypt inside a mausoleum (above ground burial).

Cremation is an alternative to the burial process. There are many reasons contributing to why a growing number of people choose cremation versus the more traditional casketed ground burial, including greater religious acceptance, less adherence to family traditions, and an increasingly mobile society. The cremation process involves the remains being placed into a casket or cremation container that is combustible and placed in a special furnace called a cremation chamber or a crematory where through intense heat is reduced to bone fragments that are then reduced  to a coarse sand like material "Ashes".  See More
