Funerals are an important part of the healing process. They are a special time for friends and relatives to gather, pay tribute and share memories after someone they love has passed on.

Above all, funerals allow us to:

  • Come to terms with the reality of death
  • Share in the remembrance of a life lived; they are a time to remember
  • Show mutual support for family and friends
  • Say goodbye; begin to make the transition from life before death to life after death, sometimes called “the reflection,” “eulogy,” “tribute” or “remembrance”
  • Have a personal reflection from one or several people on the life of their loved one; can be held in a place of worship or in the chapel of the funeral home

TYPES OF FUNERAL SERVICES

The most common types of funeral services for both burial and cremation are:

Burial

1. Traditional Funeral Service

  • Friends and family are invited to visit the funeral home to pay their respects to the deceased and offer condolences to the family.
  • Visitation provides time for sharing and remembrance and is followed by a funeral ceremony at the cemetery or mausoleum.
  • Following the funeral ceremony, the deceased is transported to the cemetery.

2. Graveside Service

  • Friends and family are invited to visit the funeral home to pay their respects to the deceased and offer condolences to the family.
  • Visitation provides time for sharing and remembrance and is followed by a funeral ceremony at the cemetery or mausoleum.
  • Following the funeral ceremony, the deceased is placed in their final resting place.
  • Graveside service can also be arranged without visitation.
