Service Options

Planning a funeral service can be a very difficult process for families who have just lost a loved one. But it’s important to provide those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye, and come to terms with the loss. Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to connect, share memories, offer words of sympathy, and create a lasting network of comfort and support as they start the journey toward healing.

Burial Services

There are different services that you can choose for a loved one’s burial, depending upon your individual needs and preferences:

  • Visitation, also called a viewing, allows family and friends to gather in a room with the departed loved one in an open or closed casket and say goodbye or offer their support and sympathy.
  • Funeral or memorial services can take place at a funeral home, in a church, or even at another facility. The service is a ceremony that serves to celebrate, honor, and remember the life of the deceased. Whether traditional or unique, both the visitation and the funeral service can be personalized to reflect the individuality of your loved one.
  • Graveside or committal services are held at the cemetery, and allow family and friends to be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final disposition through ground burial.
  • Immediate burial means that your loved one will be buried or entombed without anyone present. A member of our staff will handle the burial in a professional, dignified manner.

Cremation Services

The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can't be a funeral service or visitation. This is absolutely not the case. You can have a traditional funeral service with cremation following the service or you can elect to have the cremation completed first and hold a memorial service to celebrate the life of the deceased at a later time. There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one's life. Cremation offers a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition:

  • Inurnment means that you'll bury your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in a family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or scattering garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations.
  • Graveside services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through meaningful tributes.
  • Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, over land, or across other meaningful sites. You also can choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for interment or another form of disposition. Please be aware that scattering on land or property you do not own or in most bodies of water is not legal without the permission of the property owner. This includes stadiums, public parks and beaches. 
  • Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one's final resting place in a nearby location.
  • The burial of cremated remains at military cemeteries require all cremains be interred.
