All too often, families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly don’t want you to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process.

Create Healing Experiences

In the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be easier to just take care of things as simply and quickly as possible. But, in these circumstances, it’s important to allow yourself and your relatives to grieve through a memorial service. You must set the stage for the future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.

Funeral Services

Gathering with friends and family at local funeral services gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation; whether you select a formal funeral or a more relaxed type of memorial service, the need for acknowledgment of the loss with family and friends is ever-present. We can help you create a unique meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one.

We offer families a memorial service with a beautiful setting in which they can come together to honor their loved ones. But, you may certainly choose to celebrate their life in a more unique setting. No matter where you decide to gather together, such funeral services will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.

Burial Services

If burial has been selected, usually any ceremonies we design revolve around the casket being present. You can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or memorial chapel. Or you could decide to have a more relaxed service, even in your family home.

Let’s just say this: there is no ‘hard and fast’ formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. We’re here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together before your loved one's interment in the cemetery of your choice.

Cremation Services

Cremation only refers to the manner in which you or your loved one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. We want you to know that this decision doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service, because your need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to be cremated. Again, the options are limited only by your imagination. We hope that you will contact us to discuss the wide variety of celebratory options open to you.

You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over

Some say it’s harsh to remind you of this, but we know we must. We want you to honor your loved one in a way that allows you to look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor their life. Creating a memorial service that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a truly priceless gift of peace of mind.
