Regardless of whether you choose a Burial Service or one involving Cremation, our duty is to create a meaningful service that is personalized to your wants and needs and that reflects the life of your loved one. There is a growing trend to incorporate hobbies and interest of the deceased's life into the ceremony, honoring and celebrating the life that was lived. These services often include testimonials and stories told by family and friends; photographs taken through out the life of the deceased are often displayed as are elements of the person's vocation and hobbies, such as hunting, fishing, golfing, gardening and motorcycling. Favorite items are displayed during the visitation and service to commemorate your loved one's life. Music that was favored by the deceased is often played during these times as well. Remember that any service we help you create will be arranged with the utmost care, dignity and respect.
Our goal in serving each family who comes to us, is to help them celebrate the life of their loved one ~ to assist them in providing a dignified service to honor the life of their loved one. The goal is to help them to graciously receive their guests, in a facility that is comfortable and suited to them ~ a place that is beautifully appointed and that speaks well of the manner in which they have chosen to honor the memory of their loved one.
