A traditional burial service is the preferred option for families who value a structured, time-honored ceremony whose conventions have been in continual use for generations. Adherents of major religions often select a traditional funeral in accordance with their faith. For families who are uncertain how to organize a service of this nature, our staff can provide compassionate guidance and help in developing funeral plans.
A memorial service is a type of ceremony intended to celebrate the deceased individual’s life. It often takes place weeks or months after the death of the deceased, and the casket is not present for the ceremony. More informal than a traditional funeral, a memorial service can take a variety of forms, but it usually deals with the individual’s interests, profession, heritage, and other aspects of their life. A celebration-of-life is one type of memorial service program.
There are a variety of reasons why some families opt for a cremation of the deceased loved one rather than a standard burial service. If you are interested in cremation services, our staff will discuss this option and go over what you need to do in order to prepare.

We also offer veteran burial services, ash scattering, and a variety of memorialization options such as tribute videos and books of memories.
