Funeral services honor the life of the departed, and are an opportunity for friends and family to give and receive emotional support as they say their farewells to the deceased.
Complete Funeral Services
A traditional complete service includes a family or public viewing of the deceased. A memorial service follows, held at a church, the funeral home or at graveside, followed by an earth or above ground burial.
Many people choose to be cremated. It is a process performed in a dignified and respectful manner and memorialized.
Complete Cremation Service
A complete cremation service is similar to a complete funeral service except that cremation follows instead of a casketed burial. Following the viewing and memorial service, the cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered or returned to the family for safekeeping.
Immediate Cremation Service
A memorial service, at a church or funeral home can follow an immediate cremation. Having a service or other ceremony honoring the decease is an important part of the grieving process.
