One of our most selected services is a traditional funeral with an open-casket viewing. Many families select services at their place of worship accompanied by an organist and vocalist to celebrate the life of their loved ones. Currently, our chapels are reserved for intimate memorial services upon cremation.
Cremation is increasingly becoming the most common choice of disposition in the United States. People are often unaware that a cremation can share all the aspects and sentiment of traditional services. We offer many memorialization options, all of which can be altered to meet the family’s wishes.
A cremation with funeral service can be completed with a casket viewing, funeral and a burial. A visitation may take place at our funeral home, a cremation chapel or a place of worship. At the conclusion of the funeral service, the deceased is transferred to a crematorium. After the cremation, we can then arrange for a private or public service for the final placement of the remains.
We offer the option of a Memorial Service that can be hosted at our facility, a place of worship – even a home or restaurant. Cremation typically takes place prior to the service, therefore the remains can be present in a selected urn.
With an immediate cremation there is no formal service, visitation or funeral. We can accommodate family members who wish to make an identification or bid a brief farewell. As with all cremations, our staff obtains all legal documentation from the Medical Examiner’s office, files a death certificate with the city and state and then transfers the deceased from place of death to the crematorium.
When you pre-arrange and pre-fund a funeral, you ensure that the funeral planned will reflect your wishes and values, and that there will be money available to pay for your funeral expenses.
