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.
Designing a Service
Whether it’s formal or informal, traditional or offbeat, a funeral provides an opportunity for family and friends to gather and support one another. A service can take place in any setting – at home, outdoors, or at our facilities, and can also incorporate music, poetry, or art in celebration of a life well-lived. We’re honored to go above and beyond in our duty to meet your personalized and specific requests.
Our staff is experienced in graciously accommodating the needs of all beliefs, faiths, lifestyles, and relationships. We’re here to answer your questions and guide you through the decisions you’ll need to make and will encourage you to take your time to figure out the most meaningful and fitting way to honor your loved one.
Caring for a Loved One’s Physical Remains
Once you’ve chosen how you’d like to celebrate your loved one’s life, the next decision you’ll face is about how you’d like to care for their physical remains. This can be a difficult and emotional choice for you and your family, and we’ll provide you with the information you need and help you consider your options to make the decision that is right for your loved one and your family. Once you’ve chosen between burial and cremation, there are a few additional decisions you’ll face:
- For traditional casket burial, you’ll need to select a casket and a cemetery, and choose between a ground burial or entombment in a mausoleum.
- For cremation, you’ll need to select an urn and choose whether to bury, entomb, inurn in a columbarium, or some other form of disposition.
No matter which path you decide to take, we’ll be there to support you while exploring your options and making an informed decision that feels right for you and your loved one.
