No two people are alike… and no two services should be alike.
We believe in taking your memories of a person you love, and from that, guiding you in selecting a tribute to them that celebrates their unique qualities and is meaningful to your family.
- Getting creative with flowers, displays, or music.
- Finding a site for a service that just seems right, like bringing a lifelong farmer home to his backyard for a service.
- Spending time with the children in the family to help them understand what they’re seeing.
- Listening to what families say, and giving them choices beyond the “usual” or expected.
Celebrations of Life with Burial, Entombment or Cremation
Helping families Celebrate a Life Lived is the most important service we provide to your family, relatives and supporting friends. There are many ways to personalize the Celebration to reflect the uniqueness of our loved ones. Choices vary from the Rite of the Christian Burial to One Last Party™. Whether we host the Celebration within our facilities, at a church, park or any other suitable venue of your choosing – we can help you plan a meaningful event that reflects both your wishes and the lifestyle of your loved one.
Celebration of Life with Cremation
Cremation, like burial or entombment, is a form of final disposition. The cremation process reduces the body to its basic elements – which are referred to as Cremains. Most families choose to have a Celebration of Life with a visitation, gathering or memorial reception followed by the actual cremation. An alternative is to have the body cremated prior to the Celebration of Life. Families then have several choices for the next step in the cremation disposition process that range from keeping the Urn that the cremains are placed in at the family’s home – to scattering at a place of endearment to the deceased – to burying the Urn in a family plot within a cemetery – to placing the Urn within a columbarium at a cemetery, church or other place of memorialization. Our associates can help you decide which method best suits your needs and wishes.
Customized to fit your family's wishes
With any Celebration of Life and final disposition you choose – our associates can help you customize and personalize the event with a variety of memorialization options that reflect the uniqueness of the life you are celebrating. We will be happy to share examples of the personalization variations available to your family through our funeral home.
I wanted to express my gratitude for the exceptional manner in which the services for my mother-in-law were conducted.
The comfort, compassion and professionalism exhibited throughout the process was extraordinary, to say the least.
In doing so, you allowed my family to transition through a difficult time with grace and emotional ease. Thank you all so much. God bless.
Thank you so very much for all you did to help us at the time of my husband's passing. Your efforts, advice, and guidance were all truly appreciated.
Scott & Connie,
Words cannot express our forever gratitude in what you both did for all of us. Thank you so much.
Thank you for all that you did to make my mom look so nice and comfortable for her service. I was so touched by how nice she looked yesterday at her service compared to the last time I saw her. Your facility is very warm and soothing and your staff was very compassionate.
Scott and Connie,
The service for mom today was perfect! She looked absolutely beautiful and so at peace. She has been in pain for so many years it was a relief to see her look so beautiful. The flowers were gorgeous she would have loved them. You handled the large crowd so nicely. We had no idea there would be that many people. The living tree on the vault was so special and all the kids commented on how neat that was. Thanks again for all you did!!!
