T he options of funeral service are almost as endless as the personalities of those being remembered.
Being a "full service" funeral home, we handle everything from the most elaborate of funerals to cremations or anatomical gifts, with or without any type of ceremony.
Our father was the first in our area to introduce many of the cremation options now marketed as "new concepts." These included alternatives such as rental caskets, visitations with same day or evening services, and the now common memorial service.
We encourage the personalization of any type of service; personalization options include:
Our large selection of Prayer Cards or Memorial Folders
Caskets with themed cap panels, cap panels with personal photos, keepsake corners and choices of laser engraved designs and inscriptions (Veteran, Ethnic, Religious, etc.)
Personalized Urns (from the most basic to commissioned works of art)
A simple Memory Table and/or Picture Board to display personal effects
We can also help with other arrangements, such as family flower pieces, the funeral luncheon, the grave marker or monument, and more.
