Funeral and burial services are essential to begin the healing process. A time when friends and family come together to express their feelings and cope with their loss, they’re typically held 3-7 days after a death. Every family grieves and remembers their loved ones in their own way. Elements of a traditional funeral and burial service may include any or all of the following:
•Immediate Burial – Some families do not believe in the pomp and circumstance surrounding a traditional funeral. Immediate burial is available for those who do not wish to have a service or celebration. The body is transported from the place of death to the funeral home and then to the cemetery for immediate burial. This is often among the cheapest burial options available.
•Visitation – Whether you call it a visitation, viewing, or wake, this is a gathering of friends and family that takes place before a funeral and burial. An open or closed casket is usually present. Music, tribute videos, photo collages, and speakers help those gathered recall fond memories with the deceased, which aids in the mourning process.
•Funeral or Memorial Service – Before the burial, many families elect to hold a funeral or memorial service. Funeral and memorial services may be held in a church, funeral home, outdoors in a park, or at a private residence of your choosing. Funerals and memorials may be customized to suit any personal, cultural, or spiritual requests. Even if your loved one is cremated, they may still be honored at any time with a funeral or memorial service.
•Graveside Service – Following the visitation and funeral, a graveside service at the cemetery offers friends and family the final chance to say goodbye to the deceased. Some families choose to have a final prayer read by a clergy member, while others prefer special music or the symbolic release of doves at the gravesite. Whatever your preferences, we can make it happen.
•Burial Service – We have a beautiful 60-acre cemetery and memorial park with individual and double-depth plots, lawn crypts, mausoleums, and columbaria vaults available to accommodate in-ground and aboveground burials. Thanks to our on-site greenhouse, we’re able to provide fresh blooms year-round to make this one of the most picturesque resting places in the state.
