Our Services

Traditionally, the funeral arrangement carried out will be a complete funeral service. This includes a visitation, or a family and/or public viewing of the deceased. A service will then follow either in a church or at the funeral home. This would be followed by the burial of the casketed remains, either earth or above ground. Cemeteries generally require that a grave liner (vault) be used to encase the casket, when earth buried. These liners are constructed of concrete or steel and are designed to hold the weight of the earth. A sealed vault may also be used.

A Military Funeral Honors Ceremony can be performed for an eligible veteran if requested by the family. For these Honors Ceremonies, the military makes available an honor guard detail of not less than two members of the Armed Forces. One member of the detail shall be a representative of the parent service of the deceased veteran. The honor detail will, at a minimum, perform a ceremony that includes the folding of the American flag and presenting it to the next of kin, and playing of taps. All veterans qualify for the gun salute.

A Graveside Service is another service option that can be selected. With this choice, the following would occur: friends and family are generally invited to visit the funeral home to pay their respects – either through a formal or informal visitation; and, after the visitation, usually the next day, the casketed remains would then be transferred to the cemetery where the graveside ceremony would occur followed by the burial.

The Cremation Service is another service option that can be selected. (Cremations can be either immediate or with a funeral service). If a Cremation Service option is selected, the offering is a service just like a complete funeral service, except that the body is taken to the crematory after the service instead of a procession to the cemetery and casketed burial. Generally, the funeral service is preceded by a visitation for family and friends. Following the funeral service or ceremony, and cremation, the cremated remains will be returned to the family. The cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered, or kept by the family. Urns are used to hold the cremated remains.

If direct, or Immediate, Cremation is selected; no viewing or funeral ceremony precedes the cremation. However, a memorial service is often carried out after the cremation. A memorial service is one where the body is not present, but having some type of service or ceremony is considered to be helpful as a way to say “good-bye” and bring closure. 

Simple Immediate Cremation can also be selected with no viewing or ceremony.
