A traditional funeral service offers comfort. It has been proven that viewing
the embalmed body in a peaceful state during visitation makes it easier for
family and friends to say goodbye and gain closure. Private time is reserved for
family before the public visitation. Floral arrangements, photographs, personal
mementos and other special items are used to spark memories and pay honor to the
life lived. Generally, visitations last for two to six hours the day before the
funeral. The following day, visitation continues up to the time of the service.
Our family reception room offers a place to gather and spend time with
those who have come to share in your loss.
The traditional funeral service is held in our funeral home, a church or special
place chosen by the family. Funerals often consist of scripture readings,
prayers, eulogy, video memorial, a sermon and music. Following the
service a vehicle procession leaves for the cemetery. At the cemetery, pall
bearers transfer the casket from the funeral coach to the gravesite. Family and
friends are led in remarks or prayers before final goodbyes are made. The final
placement of the body in an earthen grave is called Interment.
Most families choose to have a luncheon reception after the services at the
cemetery. This is an informal gathering where families greet those in
attendance. These luncheon receptions are held at the funeral home, church,
community building or a restaurant. Our family reception room is an
option selected by many families. Meals can be catered to suit every taste and
