Service Options

Funeral planning can be a difficult process while grieving the loss of a loved one. But having a funeral provides those who are grieving a place to receive support, come to terms with their loss, say goodbye, and honor their loved one’s life. Being surrounded by family and friends lets everyone share stories and memories and creates a lasting support system as everyone begins their grief journey.

 


 

Burial Services

Depending on your personal preferences, there are several services to choose from for a loved one’s burial:

  • A visitation or wake, lets everyone gather together in a room with your loved one in an open or closed casket to say goodbye and comfort the bereaved.
  • Funeral or memorial services can be held at a funeral home, church, or other location. The service is for celebrating and honoring your loved one’s life. Both the visitation and service can be personalized to suit your loved one's unique personality.
  • Graveside, chapel, or committal services take place at the cemetery. They let everyone be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final resting place through ground burial.
  • For immediate burial, your loved one will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering.



Cremation Services

Many people are surprised to hear that selecting cremation does not eliminate the possibility of having a funeral service. A traditional viewing and service can be done prior to cremation or a service can be held after cremation takes place. We strongly encourage having a service to celebrate and remember the life of your loved one. 

After the cremation and services, there are several options for your loved one's final disposition:

  • Interment is when you bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in a family plot, memorial site, cremation niche or urn garden, or other indoor and outdoor locations. Please reach out to our staff for a detailed list of interment options.
  • Graveside cremation services are similar to traditional ground burials. Everyone at the burial of the cremated remains can honor your loved one through meaningful tributes and committal poems/prayers.
  • Scattering is when you spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, cemetery, over water, or another significant location. 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.
  • By placing cremated remains in multiple urns, family members who live in different locations can each have their loved one's final resting place close to them.


It is important to have a plan on what will be done with the cremains so they are stored in a respectful way. Not just now but generations from now.
