This traditional service consists of the deceased being placed in an urn or casket in the cemetery and allowing for others to visit at the service. We encourage loved ones to leave flowers, mementos, or a handful of soil that can be tossed into the grave as a way to say goodbye and show their condolences.
This option has your loved one placed in public viewing in a facility such as your home or another venue like a church that allows the casket to remain open for family and friends. The viewing is celebrated with readings, music, or other tributes from friends and family to express their feelings.
The graveside service is a more straightforward option held onsite but has no viewing. The offering can involve family speakers and readings of messages or scriptures for the departed. There can be an individual to lead the service if you wish.
Simple or traditional cremation
Simple cremation services do not include a celebration or memorial. Instead, once the appropriate paperwork is finalized, the deceased is taken to the crematory, then placed in an urn that can be taken home or buried. The traditional option is the same process but with a funeral procession, leading up to the individual being transported for cremation.
These are similar to a traditional service, with visitation being held the evening prior in the funeral home or appointed location. A flag is folded and placed on the casket or nearby. Then and the service is held with readings and memories being shared. The playing of Taps is available, and if requested, a rifle volley can be added in. The verifying method is the DD214 and will be requested before scheduling.
