Planning a Funeral

The funeral is an important step toward healing, not only for yourself, but for everyone who is affected by the loss of your loved one. There are a number of things to consider when putting someone’s final arrangements in place. 

Which type of service will help you and your loved ones heal?

Having friends and family around you at a difficult time is the first step in the healing process. Whether you prefer a traditional funeral with a viewing or a memorial service, we want to help you make the right decisions for you and the family and friends of your loved one.  

Too often, people choose a fast service with little time for remembering a life lived. Having a funeral service with time to say goodbye and proper measures in place to ensure that your loved one is remembered now and in the future is important, not only for your healing, but for others as well.

Just imagine: Fifteen years from now, your loved one’s grandchildren will be able to get to know their grandfather thanks to our Book of Memories memorial tribute pages.  Click here to learn more.

​Working Together

We know funerals and you know your loved one. Let’s work together to create a memorial service that will pay a fitting tribute. 
 
We’ll leave the details up to you. You can choose where, when and how to hold the service. You can choose the music you want played, the prayers that will be recited and the special services and personal touches that will help you honor a life well-lived. You make the decisions and leave the rest to us.

The Funeral Ceremony

If you would like to share this moment with your broad network of family and friends, we will help you spread the word. We’ll use our print and online channels to bring the community together to celebrate your loved one’s life.

You can choose to hold your ceremony in our beautiful chapel or you can choose to hold it elsewhere. Just let us know what you prefer.

Burial Services

If you’ve chosen to have your loved one buried, you may want the casket present at the service. Many people choose to hold a viewing prior to the service. Whichever option you choose, we will work with you to ensure that you have every opportunity to bring family and friends together to say a final goodbye before the burial. For more information on our Burial Services, click here.

Cremation Services

If you choose cremation, we strongly recommend that you hold a memorial service to help you and your loved ones in the healing process. Please contact us to learn about all of the options available to you. For more information on our Cremation Services, click here.

What’s next?

While it’s important to think about the details of the service and how you’ll keep your loved one’s memory alive, it’s just as important to involve others in the decision. We encourage you to bring family and friends together to discuss their needs and desires.

If you need further assistance or advice, please contact us and we’ll guide you in the right direction.  Click here to contact us.
