Traditional Burial Services
There are many different services that you can choose for a loved one's burial. These services can be as simple or as elaborate as you desire. Depending upon your individual needs and the personal preferences of the departed loved one, we can tailor a service that is healing, meaningful, and memorable for everyone involved.
The following represent some of the services we offer and may be changed or blended to best suit your needs and create the perfect event for you and your family.
- Immediate Burial: $2975.00
The simplest of our burial offerings, this service is chosen when your loved one will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering. Often times this service is chosen if the family can not be present but wishes to ensure the proper care and respect for their departed family member.
Many families however wish to have more formal services for their family members. They find comfort and healing in sharing the loss with close friends and family and wish to celebrate the life of their loved ones. The following are some ideas of ways to share and remember a life well lived:
- Visitation: Also called a viewing, wake, or calling hours, this service allows family and friends to gather at the funeral home, church, or other meaningful and suitable location with the departed loved one in an open or closed casket. This service is most often chosen to say goodbye and bring closure to the loss. It is also the opportunity for friends and family to offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved.
- Funeral/Memorial Service: This service can take place at a funeral home, in a church, or even at your home. The service is a ceremony that 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.
- Graveside, Chapel, or Committal Service: These services are held at the cemetery or within a Chapel at the cemetery. This service allows family and friends to be present as their loved one is placed in their final resting place whether in the ground or in a Mausoleum. This service is often times accompanied by clergy or family members saying some final words or prayers and remaining present for the lowering or placement of the casket into its final resting place.
Your funeral director will be happy to discuss all of the options available to you at the arrangement conference or by request before a need arises.
