Our Services

With a little guidance and a lot of support, a well-planned, thoughtful funeral or cremation service can be one of the most comforting ways to honor the life of a loved one.

The funeral provides for the dignified and respectful care of the deceased. It is a special tribute to a unique life. The funeral service helps the survivors face the reality of death—the first step in overcoming grief. It affords those friends and relatives an opportunity to express the love and respect they feel for someone who was important to them. Seeing how much someone cares can be a tremendous psychological help to a bereaved family adjusting to their loss.

Traditional Burial
A funeral with an open or closed casket, a period of visitation provided for the family and friends as well as public, religious or fraternal services if requested and burial at a cemetery.

Traditional Cremation
The same as a Traditional Burial with cremation at a crematory replacing the internment at a cemetery. Most families select an appropriate funeral service to take place before the cremation or after. You may still have a traditional funeral including visitation, with the cremation disposition taking place after the service. The psychological benefits of viewing our loved ones and having the opportunity to say good-bye are well documented and are available with cremation.

Direct Burial
A burial without visitation, religious or fraternal services or family participation.

Direct Cremation

A cremation without visitation, religious or fraternal services or family participation. Some people choose direct cremation believing that the quickest, simplest option is best. However, all cultures recognize the need to come together to share and grieve at the time of death. Most people require something more than only to dispose of their loved one. Grief shared is grief diminished.
