A funeral offers families and friends the time to reflect on a loved one's life, while honoring memories collectively. It is a time for human sharing in its deepest sense. Funerals also fill an important role for those mourning the loss of a loved one. The funeral home should offer a caring, supportive environment where family and friends are able to share their thoughts and feelings. In this way, funerals are the first step in the healing process.
It is a difficult time when families find themselves at the center of the funeral selection process. First, they must decide the type of funeral, which will make the event into a meaningful experience for everyone. Then, an informed selection of funeral services and merchandise can begin.
No matter what your funeral preferences, our funeral director will help with every aspect of the funeral process.
When a death occurs, we are prepared to respond to your needs and guide you through the many decisions that must be made.
If possible, try to make planning the funeral a joint effort with other family members or very close friends. Working together can sometimes lessen the burden and further enable the healing process. Many decisions listed in our Funeral Service Options Section can best be made by several people, keeping in mind the deceased's wishes.
