TRADITIONAL FUNERAL SERVICE
Many families in our area choose to pay their last respects through a
Traditional Funeral Service with family and friends. A traditional funeral
service is when your loved one is present and usually includes a viewing or
visitation and formal funeral service that can be held in our funeral home or at
a church. Typically, a time of visitation is followed by the funeral ceremony. A
visitation is a time when family and friends are invited to view the deceased
and say their last goodbyes.
A Memorial Service is a service without a visitation and the remains of your
loved one are not present at the time of the service. The memorial service is a
time to commemorate the life of your loved one. This ceremony can be held at the
funeral home or a church.
Families gather at the grave site where a brief ceremony is held to honor the
memory of the deceased.
Direct Burial is when burial occurs shortly after death. No viewing or
visitation is involved, so no embalming is necessary, although a memorial
service is often held at the funeral home or graveside.
Direct Cremation is when cremation occurs shortly after death, without
embalming. The cremated remains are placed in an urn or other container. No
viewing or visitation is involved, although a memorial service may be held at
the funeral home or the church, with or without the cremated remains present.
FORWARDING OF REMAINS TO OR
RECEIVING REMAINS FROM ANOTHER FUNERAL HOME
Death sometimes occurs unexpectedly. If a death occurs locally and it is necessary to conduct services elsewhere, we are able to handle the initial preparation and transport the remains to another funeral home for services. Likewise, we are also able to handle the arrangements if a death occurs out of town or out of state and it is necessary to return them home for a visitation, service, or disposition.
