  • Funeral Services: For funeral services, the ceremony may be small, intimate gatherings or large, elaborate affairs. What is most important is the opportunity for family and dear friends to support each other and make way for acceptance and healing to begin. Many emotions are generally experienced during the services that honor a well-lived life. A funeral may be held regardless of the type of final disposition that you choose. They can be offered in either case, before cremation or burial.
  • Memorial Services: Memorial services are much like a funeral since they are designed to help us remember and pay tribute to a loved one. Unlike funerals, there can be more flexible timelines allowing for planning weeks to months beforehand if desired. A memorial may be held with or without a funeral urn containing ashes. These services can be offered in a variety of settings.
  • Burial Services: Burial services may be utilized in a number of ways. There may be a desire for immediate burial without a public service attached. Some families wish for an opportunity to hold a visitation or wake service for loved ones to pay their final respects to the departed. The casket may be closed or open for this meeting. Others may feel it is better for the situation at hand to hold a simple graveside service. Burial may be used for containerized ashes as well. There are many viable avenues to use with this style of service.
  • Cremation Services: Cremation is an option that has grown in popularity over the last several years. Cremation may be handled immediately, as with a direct or simple cremation, and have no publicly attended service offered. It may be addressed as soon as legal requirements are met. The process of cremation is handled with great dignity and respect for the deceased. All services for cremation are performed individually with secure protocols for identification and safeguarding of the final remains.
