Our Services

 

We pride ourselves in providing each family with dignified, personal services at their time of need. As a leading provider of funeral service in the area, we offer funeral and memorial service options for families from all walks of life. The personal attention and genuine concern that we show families is what sets us apart from other funeral service providers.

Our pledge to you is to assist each family create a unique and meaningful service that best commemorates your loved ones life, and to be supportive to those that are left behind.

Traditional Funeral Services

A traditional funeral service is when the body of your loved one is present. Generally, the traditional service option consists of a visitation the day and/or night before the funeral. The funeral service itself is held at either our facility, in a church or other location. There is then a procession following the funeral to the cemetery for a committal service.

Cremation Services

For those families preferring cremation, we offer many options. When making cremation arrangements, we will help guide the family through all the options available to them.

The Funeral Service and Cremation | Many people see the value in selecting a service with a visitation and funeral service followed by the cremation. After the cremation, a public or private inurnment of the ashes can take place, or the remains can be returned to the family.

The Memorial Service and Cremation | Families may select an immediate cremation followed by a memorial service. A memorial service differs from a funeral service in that the body is not present at a memorial service. The cremated remains are usually present at the memorial service in an urn. Memorial services may be held in our facility, at a church or other facility.

Immediate Cremation | Cremation can also be selected without any visitation, viewing or ceremony.

Funeral and Cremation Merchandise
 
As a full service funeral home, we have a large variety of caskets, burial vaults, and urns for your convenience. We will assist you in selecting services and merchandise that meet both your budget and your wishes for planning a meaningful service for your loved one.

Personalizing The Service

Our staff recognizes that no two persons are exactly alike. Our goal is to assist families create a unique and meaningful service that best commemorates your loved ones life. We offer a full line of casket panels and casket corners that will personalize the casket that you select.

We are also now offering families that we serve a free Life Tribute DVD presentation that may be shown at the visitation, during the service, or at the reception following the service at the cemetery. This Life Tribute can also be watched on that persons obituary page on our website. This presentation is the perfect way to remember and commemorate a life well lived, and is a great keepsake for the family to enjoy for years to come. The family receives one copy of the presentation, and may purchase additional copies at a reduced price. We not only encourage a DVD presentation, but encourage families to bring in and display other pictures and other memorabilia for display on tables or a magnetic memorial board.

Pre-Arrangement Options

Preplanning your funeral or the funeral of a loved one is one of the most thoughtful things you can do for your family. We realize that it is not always an easy thing to talk about. We can help you make the necessary arrangements now, so that when the time comes, your family is secure in the knowledge they’re doing what you would have wanted.

We feel that it is important that pre-arrangements are completed with the assistance of on of our licensed funeral directors, the one who will actually be directing the service. One of our funeral directors, not a funeral salesman, can meet with you at our funeral home or at your home, whichever you prefer.

Steps in the pre-arrangement process include:

•Gathering personal biographical information and service information. This may be done by filling out the pre-planning form found on this web site. You may also call our funeral home and receive a free funeral pre-arrangement guide, or make an appointment to meet with one of our funeral directors.
•Selecting services and merchandise that best fits your needs.
•Prepayment options can be discussed to help you find which option works best for you. Prepaying for your funeral eliminates the financial worries for your family.

One of the benefits of pre-arranging is that you are in control of all phases of this process. This will all help take a lot of the decision making and stress from your family at the time of your funeral.
