The Value of Ceremony
A funeral or memorial service is one way to help those who are left behind take the first step in overcoming grief-that is, facing the fact that a death has occurred. Losing a loved one is truly difficult. Whether their passing was sudden, or due to a lingering illness, there are strong emotions to be processed. Grieving takes time, and must be honored.
Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation; whether you select a formal funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, the need for acknowledgment of the loss with family and friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one.
No matter where you decide to gather together, such a service will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.
If burial has been selected, you can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and a funeral service followed by burial or cremation.
A Graveside Burial is a service of remembrance held at the burial site. Viewing hours are always an option if the family chooses.
A Memorial is a service personally designed by the family and is usually held at the funeral home or location of choice. The deceased is usually not present.
All funeral service options fulfills the same purpose, it helps us acknowledge death, give testimony to the life of the deceased, encourage expression of grief, provide support, embrace of faith and beliefs about life and death and offers hope.
