Service Alternatives
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.

MEMORIAL SERVICE
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.

GRAVESIDE SERVICE
Families gather at the grave site where a brief ceremony is held to honor the memory of the deceased.

DIRECT BURIAL
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
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.
