Traditional Service

A funeral is an important event that reflects the personality of the deceased loved one.  Funerals give us a time and place to grieve so that we may begin to heel and adjust to life without our loved one.  Usually the gathering time is a set time period when family and friends can meet to offer condolences, share stories, and offer support.  The gatherings can be open to everyone or can be a private time.

After the gathering there is a ceremony which may contain prayers, eulogies and music; such as a funeral Mass or a funeral Service which can be at a church, a chapel, the funeral home, or other suitable place.  This service led by clergy or a person trained in funeral ceremony.

Following the funeral Service or Mass the deceased is taken to the cemetery or crematory.  At the cemetery there may be a short service and Military Honors  then the casket would be placed for final disposition, either in a cemetery grave or mausoleum crypt.  If cremation was selected, final placement and service may take place at a later date.

After the service there is often a gathering of friends and family to continue the celebration of a life, to share memories and show support to loved ones. Families often share a meal, photo slide show and continue the eulogies.

Every family's needs will be different and every funeral is customized to meet  those needs.  Use the above information as a guide to select the services  we can provide to give your loved one the type of funeral you want.
