The death of a loved one is one of the most stressful events in anyone’s life, and yet decisions still need to be made. The manner of service and the merchandise must be selected. With guidance and compassion we are able to offer you some peace of mind in an emotional and trying time, while handling all the technical details.
Whether your wishes are for a traditional funeral with military honors, or a simple committal service, our family owned funeral home offers you the same care and understanding.
Product selections vary according to your individual taste and your affordability. We offer a variety of options.
The Traditional Funeral Service is what most families choose when selecting their funeral arrangements. It normally includes a visitation with family and friends at the funeral home. The funeral service takes place either the same day, immediately following the visitation, or the next day. Services can be conducted at the funeral home or at your church. Burial occurs at the cemetery of your choice.
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. It is a time for family and friends to commemorate their loved one and comfort each other. Our staff will provide our professional services with the use of the funeral home or have funeral professionals present at the church of your choice.
A Graveside Service is a way for family and friends to pay their last respects to their loved one without the formalities involved with a Traditional Funeral Service. Normally, family and friends will gather at the grave site for a brief ceremony conducted by a clergy or family members.
Immediate Burial is when burial occurs shortly after death. No viewing or visitation is involved, so no embalming is necessary. A Memorial Service or Graveside Service can be selected accompanying any immediate burial.
