For simple, economic direct cremation or immediate burial, we will transfer the deceased remains from the place of death, respond to your residence to sign all necessary documentation or if convenient express mail the necessary paperwork, file all necessary documents, place the remains in an alternative container or a casket and transfer the remains to the crematory or cemetery. Arrangements for identification can be made at our facility or the local crematory.

In the case of cremation we will make arrangements to have the cremated remains returned to your home within a temporary container suitable for burial, transportation, scattering, or you may purchase a decorative urn.

Traditional Funeral

A “Traditional Funeral” usually entails an open casket viewing prior to cremation or burial. The body is embalmed, a preservation process to permit public viewing for one or more days. This provides relatives and friends the opportunity to express their condolences, offer support and pay tribute. The visitation may include; religious, club or organization services, eulogies of the deceased, appropriate music or hymns, flower displays, pictures and items of memorabilia.

On the morning of the funeral, a final viewing precedes a funeral procession to a church or other place of worship celebrated by a priest or minister.

A procession then continues to the cemetery or crematory where a final brief service is held. A Military Funeral Honors ceremony for veterans consists of the folding and presentation of the American flag and the sounding of Taps by a detail of uniformed members of the Armed Forces.
