Designing your Funeral
There are two aspects of the design process. First, we ask you to consider how you wish to honor and celebrate the life. When those important decisions are made, we’ll turn to the issue of how you wish to care for the physical remains.
How to Honor a Life.
The first thing to consider is how you want to honor the life of your loved one. Many people come together for visitations, memorial services, family gatherings, and funeral services in order to celebrate the life loved. Being near your family and friends can be very healing.
We will sit down with you and plan exactly what fits your needs the best. There are many different ways to honor life. It could involve a private family viewing, a traditional visitation, memorial service, a catered reception for the family, an intimate gathering of friends, a worship ceremony, traditional or contemporary funeral services. You can choose the day of the week for the service, the time, the staff, music, etc.
Our funeral directors can work with your family to create a ceremony that helps you begin the grieving process. It is becoming more common to tailor funeral services to reflect the personality and lifestyle of the deceased. You can choose to assemble a display containing family photographs, favorite possessions, and items from a hobby or awards the deceased received. These items help shift the emphasis of the services to the memories of the person’s life, rather than on the circumstances of his or her death.
Because details are so very important to the families we serve, we have created a variety of unique ways to add special touches and memories for your loved one including:
Create a Meaningful Ceremony
Once you've explored some possibilities, we will help you design a personalized service that is special to you. There's no option that's too grand or too unique. We want to make your wishes a reality. Every individual should be celebrated in a distinctive way that honors the life we are serving.
