“Our ultimate goal is not the sale of
a funeral – it’s the creation of something much more important
– a meaningful service that is appropriate and affordable for each
of the families we serve.”
The families we serve have many options for services at a variety of costs that provide any level of funeral service they desire. Our understanding and knowledgeable funeral directors are dedicated to respecting your family’s wishes and helping you make an informed decision. There are virtually unlimited choices available, and each family has the opportunity to select whatever they believe is appropriate for them. Whatever your family chooses, our staff will provide them with the same quality, caring service and attention to detail.
TRADITIONAL FUNERAL SERVICES
Planning the details of a funeral and coordinating the service are difficult tasks in a time of crisis. Beginning at the moment we receive notification of a person’s death, our professional staff will begin to assist your family with the many details of planning a funeral. We’ll take responsibility for the care of your loved one. A funeral director will make arrangements to meet with you to discuss your wishes, assure compliance with the law, provide assistance with floral selection and help coordinate the time and place of the funeral service. We’ll make our staff and facilities available to your family and help coordinate the details of the service with the clergy, the cemetery, or other participants in the ceremony. Our caring staff will also aid your family in completing any necessary paperwork including obituary notices, Social Security forms, and Veteran’s and insurance benefits.
Casket SelectionOur selection of metal and wood caskets include a wide range of styles and prices to accommodate the needs of all the families we serve. Our understanding and knowledgeable Funeral Directors will be with you every step of the way in a helpful and supportive manner. It is important to know that there are no wrong decisions when selecting a casket, only right ones. It really comes down to the personal preference of you and your family.
Choose from one of our special guest registry packages and an assortment of other remembrance items and keepsakes. We also offer assistance with the selection of a monument or marker from our memorial selection room.
Adding a Personal TouchWe can offer suggestions on the many ways of making your loved one’s service a personal one. Families find that personalizing the service makes the time all the more comforting to those attending.
Cremation is an option more families are choosing as part of their funeral plans. The reasons people give for choosing cremation vary. There are those who believe cremation is a less expensive funeral care alternative. Some believe it’s the “right thing to do” for the earth. Still others choose cremation when families are separated by distance. Whatever, your reasons for choosing cremation, our staff will be by your side to explain the many options available.
Funeral Services with CremationPrior to cremation, your family may choose to have a visitation and a funeral service with your loved one present. Our knowledgeable staff will explain cremation caskets and cremation rental caskets for those families choosing to have a viewing followed by cremation.
Services can also take place after cremation, either at the funeral home or your church. Your family may or may not have the cremated remains placed in an urn for the memorial tribute services.
Regardless of when a service is held, having some kind of ceremony provides family and friends with the opportunity to say a final “good-bye.” This time also gives your family an opportunity to share their memories and give support to one another.
Final DispositionPlacing the cremated remains in a permanent memorial is just as important to some families as the memorial service itself. For many, a grave or mausoleum niche is a place to visit and remember the life of their loved one. Others find a place in their home to keep the cremated remains. Choosing a place for final disposition provides your family the opportunity to visit and reflect in a permanent, identifiable location.
Whatever your wishes, our professional staff will
assist your family in planning a unique, individual tribute for your loved
one before or after the cremation process.
