A traditional funeral service with visitation is the most frequently selected service we offer. A traditional funeral service is one which is usually preceded by a visitation and viewing. The traditional funeral service is held with the body present, with either an open or closed casket typically within three to five days of death. The service may be public or private. A member of the clergy will usually officiate at the service that will be held in the church or in the funeral home chapel. The service will normally consist of scripture readings, prayers, a eulogy, and sometimes a sermon. This may be combined with hymns and music. A procession to the cemetery follows, where a brief committal service at the gravesite will conclude the service. We will tailor the funeral service to meet the individual needs and desires of our families.
The visitation is a time for family and friends to support one another in their time of grief. The body is present in an open or closed casket allowing the family and friends the opportunity to acknowledge the reality of death and to say goodbye to their loved one.
Non Traditional Funeral Services
We offer a variety of services that cater to the needs of individuals of different faiths and traditions. We refer to these services as non traditional (i.e. Islamic, Buddhist, Jewish, etc.)
At a graveside service , family and friends will gather at the cemetery for the service. The funeral director will also be present, and is able to provide transportation for family to and from the cemetery if desired. Usually a member of the clergy officiating the service. There can be music, a eulogy, poems, or other readings during the service.
