TRADITIONAL FUNERAL SERVICE

Many families in our area choose to say their last goodbyes through a Traditional Funeral Service with family and friends. A traditional funeral service is when your loved one is present and usually includes a viewing or visitation and formal funeral service that can be held in our funeral home or at a church. Typically a time of visitation will precede the funeral ceremony. A visitation is a time when family and friends are invited to view the deceased and pay their last respects. Along with the visitation and funeral services, this service package includes the use of a hearse to transport the remains to the funeral site and cemetery, and burial, entombment or cremation of the remains. In addition to the professional services, embalming and preparation, use of the funeral home for the viewing or service or staff services for church services, and all transportation is included. The costs of a casket and burial vault, urn or other container, cemetery plot, and other funeral goods and services must be purchased additionally. 

MEMORIAL SERVICE 
A Memorial Service is a service without a visitation and the remains of your loved one are not present at the time of the service. The memorial service is a time to commemorate the life of your loved one. This ceremony can be held at the funeral home or a church. This service package includes professional services, use of funeral home facilities or staff services for church service, and all transportation. The costs of a casket, burial vault, urn or other container, cemetery plot, and other funeral goods and services must be purchased additionally. 

GRAVESIDE SERVICE 
Selecting a Graveside Service meets the needs of families who need to view the body to gain closure and begin healing, and wish to avoid the formality associated with a Traditional Funeral Service.

This service package includes professional services, all transportation, and tent rental at cemetery. The costs of a casket and burial vault, cemetery plot, and other funeral goods and services must be purchased additionally.
