Traditional Funeral Services
With this option you receive public visiting hours or a private family viewing followed by a service at the funeral home or in your church. Services will conclude with either burial or cremation.
This is a service held at the graveside location with clergy, family and friends. This can be a public or private service.
There are many cremation options available from which to choose. We can accommodate traditional visiting hours at the funeral home, followed by a church or funeral home service prior to cremation or a memorial service at the funeral home or church after cremation with a public or private invitation. Also available to those who so wish, is immediate cremation followed by a memorial or graveside service at a date convenient for family members.
Some people are looking for a more colorful, personalized ways to say goodbye to loved ones. Such services often include music, videos, photographs and other mementos that celebrate the individuality of the deceased. It is important to utilize the funeral director, his staff and facilities to personalize the funeral/memorial service that you envision.
