Which funeral or cremation services are a good fit for your family? Start by learning about the industry so you can evaluate the specific funeral packages to match your needs. These are some of the most popular options you might consider:
- Funeral Service: The actual funeral event is a time to gather with friends and family. Often, this event includes a big list of attendees, as well as a program to share stories, readings, and music in honor of the deceased. We offer a beautiful space in our funeral home for these services including staff to provide support and oversee the specific details of the event.
- Memorial Services: A memorial is very similar to traditional funeral services. There is one notable difference between a memorial and funeral – the casket is not present at the event. Families might pair cremation with a memorial service. Or, the service is sometimes held after a person is laid to rest. If a delayed memorial is better for family who will be traveling, then you might adjust the timing of these services based on the needs of your loved ones.
- Cremation Services: What are the reasons you should consider cremation instead of cemetery burial? Cremation is a popular option because it is simple and affordable compared to traditional cemetery placement. We promise the highest levels of respect through all stages of the cremation. Your family will be presented with the ashes, then you can decide how your loved one will be laid to rest.
- Office Support: You might be surprised to learn how many administrative requirements need to be met when a person passes away. Families can be weighed down by paperwork and procedures, which is why our team offers full support for these tasks that need to be addressed behind the scenes. We provide help with everything from paperwork and permits to death certificate coordination, transportation, communication, and more.
- Products: Regardless of the way you choose to lay your loved one to rest, it’s likely that you need funeral products to accommodate this desired service. For example, talk to us about designs and stone materials for headstones and grave markers. We also offer a variety of designs for caskets, urns, and more. Families often choose memorial products as well such as memorial jewelry or other items to remind them of the memories in the future.
