When you first begin the process of designing a funeral, the decisions you’ll face might seem overwhelming. But we’re here to help. The process can be broken down into two stages: decisions on how you’d like to honor your loved one’s life, and regarding how you’d like to care for your loved one’s physical remains.

A funeral represents an opportunity to honor tradition and reflect on the meaning of a life that has been lived. You and your loved ones are at the very center of the process, and the choices you make are significant.

Traditionally, a funeral service includes a family or public viewing of the deceased. Following this will be a service, typically in church or the funeral home chapel. This would then be followed by the earth burial or above-ground placement of the casketed remains.

Cremation with a service is another offering. This service mirrors the Traditional Funeral Service (above) except cremation will follow instead of the casketed burial. Following the service or ceremony and eventual cremation, the cremated remains can be buried, entombed, interned in a space specifically designed for cremated remains, or returned to the family.


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.
