Traditional and personalized
A funeral service is an popular option we offer that is an honorable and traditional choice to truly celebrate a life lived, in a personal way.
Traditional services can be customized to share the memories of your loved one. Generally, a funeral service includes the following:
- Visitation with family and friends
- Funeral ceremony
- Burial of your loved one at the cemetery (may be private or public)
Location of the funeral ceremony and reception are of your choosing. We will go over available options during the arrangement process.
Services are held at the gravesite at a cemetery. Graveside services can follow a traditional funeral or can be held as the only service event. Graveside services can be held as private gatherings of only close family and friends. We can work with you to contact your cemetery of choice to get full details.
The Value of a Viewing
Whether or not an open casket is part of the celebration is an individual family choice. The main reason that we have any “viewing” is because that allows people to have a physical presence to focus on when saying their goodbyes. Since most people are very visually inclined by nature, it seems to help them to see the person for the death to be “real” to them and allows them to better focus to begin to tidy up the loose ends that they have with this person. A funeral helps people begin to complete their relationship with the person who died, and sometimes seeing the body helps.
