The Healing Power of Memorial Services

Coping with a loss is never easy, and services are an essential part of the recovery process. A Funeral service provides those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye, and come to terms with the loss. Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to connect, share memories, offer words of sympathy, and create a lasting network of comfort and support as they start the journey toward healing and peace. No matter the setting, style, or direction you choose, our professional staff are honored to assist you in creating a service that reflects your loved one's unique life journey.

 


Burial Services

There are different elements you can choose from when arranging a burial, depending upon your individual needs and preferences:

Immediate Burial means that your loved one's physical remains will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering.


Visitation
(also called a "viewing", "wake" or "calling hours") allows family and friends to gather in a room with the departed loved one (in an open or closed casket) and gives everyone the opportunity to say goodbye and offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved.


Funeral or Memorial Services
can take place at a funeral home, in a church or even at your home. The service is a ceremony which serves to celebrate, honor, and remember the life of the deceased. Whether traditional or unique, both the visitation and the funeral service can be personalized to reflect the individuality of your loved one. For more information on personalization, visit our page on Celebrating Life.


Graveside, Chapel, or Committal Services
are held at the cemetery, and allow family and friends to be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final disposition through ground burial.

 


Cremation Services

The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can't be a funeral service or visitation. This is absolutely not the case - when you choose to care for the physical remains through cremation, we encourage you to consider holding a memorial service as well. There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one's life: you can provide a chance for friends and family to say goodbye through a final viewing before the cremation, and you can also hold a formal service either before or after the cremation occurs. After the cremation itself, there are a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition:

Interment means that you'll bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in the family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. Ask our staff for a detailed list of interment possibilities.


Graveside Services
are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.


Scattering
allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You can also choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for internment or another form of disposition.


Placing cremated remains in multiple urns
allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one's final resting place in a nearby location.

 


Memorialization

After the funeral is over, a permanent memorial can provide family and friends with a dedicated place to continue their healing journey. 

A Lasting Tribute

The grieving process doesn't end when the funeral does. Oftentimes, the services are just the first steps to healing and recovery. It can be hard for the bereaved to return to their regular routines so soon after the services are over, especially given the demands of the modern world and the limits that many employers place on allowed time for grieving.

Creating a lasting tribute can give family and friends a permanent place to visit whan they need help feeling connected to the loved one who has passed. It serves as a focus for their memory, and provides a private space for reflection and peace. It can also serve as a location for family and friends to commemorate important occasions, and can help make it easier to cope on meaningful dates like birthdays or anniversaries. As the years pass, a permanent memorial can also become a link to the past for younger generations who may not have had the opportunity to meet the departed loved one during their lifetime.

 

A Peaceful Resting Place

 

No matter how you choose to care for your loved one’s physical remains, we pride ourselves on our ability to help you select from a variety of peaceful and picturesque settings for their final resting place. Whether you prefer the calm serenity of a natural park or the stately grandeur of a mausoleum, our experts are here to understand your needs and concerns, answer your questions, and provide you with all of your options and the information you need to make an informed decision about your loved one’s final resting place.

Contact us to connect with our staff, ask questions or request more information about your options.

 

Ground Burial

When it comes to a traditional in-ground burial, your family can choose between the different estate lots, multiple space lots, or single space graves available at local cemeteries. We’ll walk you through the different burial grounds that exist in our community, and assist you in finding an option that fits your needs, budget, and personal preferences.


Mausoleums

Mausoleums are available at many local cemeteries and provide space for above-ground entombment of physical remains within a beautiful structure on cemetery grounds. A family might choose to use their own private structure, or may opt to share space in a community mausoleum. Though in the past a private family mausoleum was considered cost-prohibitive for many families, they’ve recently become a much more affordable option and a valuable investment for future peace of mind.


Cremation Options

There are a variety of ways to care for your loved one’s cremated remains, whether you decide to keep them within your home, spread them in a cherished location, or inter them in a garden, statue, or other memorial property. We have a wide selection of elegant and beautiful urns you can choose from, and can also provide you with local options for the entombment of your cremation urn. Cremation niches are available within many local mausoleums, as well as in area cremation gardens and inurnment plots.
