Services – This is probably
what we as a society are most accustomed to. It involves
complete body preparations, embalming, and having the individual
available for a casketed visitation and service at either their
local church or at our funeral home. The casketed remains are
then taken to a cemetery or mausoleum for interment or entombment.
- Cremation Services – When
cremation is chosen, there are options!
- You can choose to have embalming and casketed remains present
for a visitation and service either at your church or
at our funeral home. The difference being, instead of going to
the cemetery or mausoleum, the deceased is transported to the
crematory for cremation. The cremains are then interred or handled
in what ever manner the family prefers.
- Some families may choose to have the cremation completed prior
to the service, either immediately or after having time
for family visitation. In either case, the cremains are then present
for whatever services are selected.
- Immediate Burial or Direct Disposition – At
the time of death, the family can choose not to have any type of
public service. We would then either go directly to the cemetery
for burial or to the crematory for cremation.
Whatever type of services you choose, there are several options
and variations. No two families are the same, so it is very understandable
to have different needs and wishes when it comes to the services
for their loved one.
You, as a family, should select whatever you are comfortable
