Service Options

Funeral planning can be a difficult process while grieving the loss of a loved one. But having a funeral provides those who are grieving a place to receive support, come to terms with their loss, say goodbye, and honor their loved one’s life. Being surrounded by family and friends lets everyone share stories and memories and creates a lasting support system as everyone begins their grief journey.

 


 

Burial Services

Depending on your personal preferences, there are several services to choose from for a loved one’s burial:

  • For immediate burial, your loved one will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering.
  • A visitation, also called a viewing, calling hours, or wake, lets everyone gather together in a room with your loved one in an open or closed casket to say goodbye and comfort the bereaved.
  • Funeral or memorial services can be held at a funeral home, church, or even your home. The service is for celebrating and honoring your loved one’s life. Both the visitation and service can be personalized to your loved one’s passions.
  • Graveside, chapel, or committal services take place at the cemetery. They let everyone be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final resting place through ground burial.



Cremation Services

For cremation services, we strongly encourage you to hold a visitation and funeral service to honor your loved one’s life. After the cremation and services, there are several options for your loved one’s final disposition:

  • Inurnment is when you bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in a family plot, memorial site, cremation niche or urn garden, or other indoor and outdoor locations. Please reach out to our staff for a detailed list ofInurnment options.
  • Graveside cremation services are similar to traditional ground burials, as everyone is at the burial of the cremated remains and honor your loved one through other meaningful tributes.
  • Scattering is when you spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, cemetery, over water, or another significant location. You also can choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn forInurnment or another form of disposition.
  • By placing cremated remains in multiple urns, family members who live in different locations can each have their loved one's final resting place close to them.



Green Burial Services

If your loved one was passionate about the environment or enjoyed spending time outdoors, a green burial service may be the perfect way to honor their memory. It’s a meaningful way to pay tribute to their legacy while also being eco-friendly.

Our staff prides itself in offering a variety of green burial options. For more information about green burial services, please contact our staff.



Payment Options

Your account may be settled with our firm as follows:

  • Option #1: Payment in cash or check by the close of business on the day after arrangements are made.
  • Option #2: VISA, Mastercard, Discover or American Express credit cards may be used to pay funeral expenses by the close of business on the day after arrangements are made.
  • Option #3: Assignable life insurance. Using insurance proceeds is a convenient way to cover funeral expenses. We will process policies over $3000 through Express Funeral Funding. EFF verifies policy status prior to releasing funds. There is a flat $350 fee added to the funeral contract, to cover the administrative charge of policy research and assignment.
  • Option #4: Proceeds from a pre-paid account with our firm. Any items selected at the time of arrangements NOT covered by the pre-paid account or any balance on non price-guaranteed items will be due at the time of arrangements by cash, check or credit card.


Note: In all cases where total payment has not been received as agreed, the family representative is responsible for late payment penalties at the rate of 1.5% monthly or 18% per annum on the unpaid balance and any legal fees incurred in the collection. A word about estates: If you wish for the estate of the deceased to pay funeral expenses, you must select one of the above options for the interim until the estate is settled, as our charges do not reflect the ability to wait for the settlement of estates. When the estate is settled, reimbursement can be made to those who paid the funeral home’s charges.
