Funeral & Cremation Options
A Personal Experience
Regardless of the service you select, we can assist you in making that selection a personalized tribute to your loved one. We encourage you to bring photos, memorabilia, or other items that were cherished or special to your family. The fond memories and stories shared with family and friends that these items call to mind, often help to soften the grief faced at a time of loss.
For those people considering cremation as an alternative to traditional burial, many do not realize that they still have the option of a more traditional service. For those so inclined, we offer special service packages that include embalming, visitation, and church or chapel service to be followed by cremation. For our patrons selecting these services, we carry a line of wood caskets designed for cremation. These caskets are less expensive than standard caskets and still offer the family the comfort of a visitation and/or viewing.
