A funeral service can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish. Our family and staff will assist you in making your desired arrangements, whether it may be burial, cremation, donation or another type of service. This is not a complete list of your options, but the following will provide an example of the wide range of services we have available to you:
The Traditional or Contemporary Funeral Service
These services include viewing hours, with the option of an open or closed casket, a gathering of family and friends for a funeral ceremony held at the funeral home or church, and an order of service followed by burial or cremation. Family members are welcomed, and encouraged to participate in the personalization of these services. The ingenuity of our directors, picture boards, and sound equipment will be available for your use to enhance this service.
The Graveside Service
This is a service of remembrance held at the cemetery with the presence of a casket or an urn. Viewing hours at the funeral home are always an option prior to this service.
A Memorial Service
This service can be a simplified version of the traditional service or it may be personally designed by the family to meet their specific needs. This service can be held at our funeral home, a church, or a location of your choice. The deceased's body is not present, but photographs, or an urn may be present, along with other memorabilia.
Our funeral homes offer a wide variety of cremation options. You may choose to have a viewing followed by a funeral service and cremation, a viewing with no service followed by cremation, direct cremation with a gathering of family and friends, direct cremation with a graveside service or direct cremation with no services.
Services Concerning a Deceased Who Died Out of State, or Who is to be Sent Out of State
Should death occur out of state, our knowledgeable staff will be able to give you the answers you need. We have the ability to arrange to bring your deceased loved one from out of state to our funeral home, or if the decedent is here and needs to be sent out of state, we will arrange for that as well. Any of the other services above can also be applied to this service.
