We understand that every family is different. Influences such as religious and cultural traditions, cost concerns and personal preferences make each funeral as unique as the person who is being honored. The following is an overview of the different types of services that we provide. Our funeral directors will discuss the many other options and details that make each of our services a personal, lasting tribute to your loved one.
A traditional funeral service includes a viewing or visitation, a formal funeral service (at local church or other location) and the necessary automotive equipment, such as a hearse to transport your loved one to the funeral site and cemetery. It is customary to purchase items such as a memorial register book, memorial folders, and acknowledgement cards. Floral tributes are often displayed, and you are encouraged to bring in photographs and other memorabilia to further personalize the service.
A graveside service is held at the cemetery or a designated conservation site. This service may be limited to the immediate family or open to all. After the service, there are options for a memorial service at or venue of your choice.
A memorial service is conducted without your loved one present and can vary in ceremony and procedures. It can be held at a location of your choice. In order to create a memorial service that is as unique as your loved one, we encourage you to help personalize the service with memorabilia, photographs and other personal items.
We offer a variety of cremation options to fit your needs, ranging from basic direct cremation (without visitation or services) to customized cremation services with visitation and a funeral or memorial service. We can assist to place your loved one in a local cemetery.
Our goal is to help make the dove release as personal and appropriate for you and your family as possible.
Horse and Carriage Services
The horse drawn funeral carriage, a magnificent goodbye! Every life is extraordinary. The celebration of that life should be just as remarkable.There is an unmistakable dignity conveyed by a horse drawn funeral hearse. The sight of a pair of horses pulling a Victorian glass carriage makes for a memorable final journey. Sleek and well-mannered black Friesian horses, or elegant snow-white steeds, are the breeds of choice for most companies providing this traditional send-off. A coachman and driver turned out in immaculate livery accompany the funeral carriage, highlighting the significance of the occasion. Whether you select a carriage in solemn black or gleaming white, none will forget your loved one’s farewell.
