A funeral is a special time for your guests; family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to come together in tribute and thanksgiving acknowledging that a death has occurred and our lives have changed. Typically it includes a period of gathering and remembrance ceremony at the funeral home concluding at a cemetery of your choosing. Many cultures and faiths have special funeral traditions that can be included in this moment.
Typically it follows cremation and includes a period of gathering and remembrance ceremony at the funeral home. This can be held shortly after a death has occurred or weeks later with or without an urn being present. What’s important is that it creates a time and space to gather, remember and celebrate.
Over the years, burial following a period of gathering and remembrance ceremony had been the most traditional of body centered funeral preferences. Our burial with guidance is a discrete option that allows our guests to gather quickly and privately at the cemetery of your choosing. If you prefer, you can also have an open casket giving your guests an opportunity to gather publicly at the funeral home, Church or other venue. Viewing the decedent before burial is a healthy way to begin the work of grief.
In recent times, cremation has become a mainstay of contemporary goodbye experience preferences. Cremation however is like burial. It’s a form of disposition and typically happens at the end after services have been completed. Including cremation gives your decision making greater flexibility and can be a part of the memorial in the beginning or at the end. Following cremation you can choose to permanently keep the cremated remains, scatter, bury or place them in a niche at a cemetery of your choosing. No matter your choice, we’re here to co-create an engaging and relevant remembrance.
