When planning a service, you have many options available to you. Some people prefer traditional funeral services. Other prefer cremation. Some want both. Some desire an elaborate ceremony. Then there are others who do not want any ceremony at all because of circumstance. When it comes to funerals, there are as many options as there are people. Our firm takes pride in begin able to say, "We offer them all." No matter your choice, we can provide you a peaceful and cozy space to join with family and friends in grief, comfort and love. And above all, we promise to maintain our pledge to provide all peoples a service rooted in excellence and trusted value.
A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can and should hold a funeral service to honor and remember your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique. Many cultures and religions have special funeral traditions and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. This is a moment for you and your family and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.
Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.
A casket burial is considered a traditional service and there are many options available when selecting this form of disposition. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or a private home/residence and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can select whether you would like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You may have a traditional funeral service with a visitation and ceremony before cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn or cremated remains present. You may choose to keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we are here to offer you a meaningful and personal ceremony.
BENEFITS OF USING A FUNERAL HOME OVER A VIRTUAL FUNERAL PROVIDER
Funeral Homes, brick-and-mortar facilities with physical offices, offer families a distinct advantage over the leading competition when it comes to cremation care. A funeral home is a local and state licensed business subject to inspection and regulation, duly authorized to provide the public with professional services that meet a series of industry standards. Unlike the unregulated online providers that appear and disappear overnight, funeral homes are required to hold professional liability and commercial conveyance insurances. We offer families the safety and security of knowing that their loved-one is in our care at all times and not transported by a third-party to a regional holding facility. Our physical presence in the community affords us the accountability families should expect from a cremation provider. And unlike the discount providers, a funeral home can return your loved-ones cremated remains in an expedited fashion once the Cremation Permit is issued. There is tangible value to the services and security a funeral home provides. For additional information, call us day or night (708) 385-0634.
