Sometimes the thought of planning a funeral seems too difficult for those who've suffered a loss. We're here to help lighten your burden and remind you of the true value a ceremony can hold for you and your family.

Coping with a loss is never easy, and services are an essential part of the recovery process. A Funeral service provides those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye, and come to terms with the loss. Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to connect, share memories, offer words of sympathy, and create a lasting network of comfort and support as they start the journey toward healing and peace. No matter the setting, style, or direction you choose, our professional staff are honored to assist you in creating a service that reflects your loved one's unique life journey.

There are different elements you can choose from when arranging a burial, depending upon your individual needs and preferences:


Immediate Burial means that your loved one's physical remains will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering.

Visitation (also called a "viewing", "wake" or "calling hours") allows family and friends to gather in a room with the departed loved one (in an open or closed casket) and gives everyone the opportunity to say goodbye and offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved.

Funeral or Memorial Services can take place at a funeral home, in a church or even at your home. The service is a ceremony which 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. For more information on personalization, visit our page on Celebrating Life.

Graveside, Chapel, or Committal Services are held at the cemetery, and allow family and friends to be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final disposition through ground burial.





Cremation Services

Cremation-With-Care funeral home providers are cremation experts. We offer the greatest measure of respect for wishes because your trust and confidence is essential. Every cremation is performed in accordance with the highest level of ethical cremation standards and procedures.

Choosing cremation rather than burial does not diminish the value of a wonderful life. Cremation, like burial...is simply the disposition of the physical body of the deceased. It does not preclude you from planning a Remembrance Gathering or creating a permanent memorial in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden that can be visited regularly by family and friends. A Remembrance Gathering honoring the wonderful life of a loved one may take place either before or after the cremation process.

More and more people are moving toward creating colorful, personalized ways to say goodbye to loved one. Remembrance Gatherings often include playing their favorite music, serving their favorite foods and displaying photographs and other mementos that celebrate their individuality. You might even consider planning a themed Remembrance Gathering. No matter what your vision of what an ideal last hurrah might be, don't be afraid to ask your Remembrance Planner.

The remembrance of the heart, spirit and soul of your loved one is a treasure which only you and your family can truly know and cherish. We offer a diverse selection of permanent cremation urns to choose from in many different styles, themes & hobbies, as well as works of art that will be displayed & enjoyed for generations. Sharing the cremated remains with Family Keepsakes and Cremation Jewelry helps to keep your loved ones memory close to heart.

 

The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can't be a funeral service or visitation. This is absolutely not the case - when you choose to care for the physical remains through cremation, we encourage you to consider holding a memorial service as well. There are many ways to honor your loved one's life: you can provide a chance for friends and family to say goodbye through a final viewing before the cremation, and you can also hold a formal service either before or after the cremation occurs. After the cremation itself, there are a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition:

Interment means that you'll bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in the family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. Ask our staff for a detailed list of interment possibilities.

Graveside Services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.

Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You can also choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for internment or another form of disposition.

Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one's final resting place in a nearby location.

We can help you use technology to bring together family and friends from all over the world in honor of a loved one who has passed. Webcasting you loved one's service gives those who are unable to travel the ability to see the service live or watch it later at their convenience. This is an especially meaningful solution for loved ones who are serving overseas and cannot attend the funeral in person.
