We will support, guide, and assist you in creating experiences that are truly special, meaningful,and above all, personal. We pride ourselves on helping you create services custom-tailored to your exacting specifications. These are some of the many options available to you:

Traditional Funeral

This is a type of service where Visitation would be held prior to a ceremony, in our facility or another facility (i.e. Church) followed by committal services at the cemetery.
Traditional Funeral w/Cremation Similar to a traditional service, however, cremation would take place following the ceremony in place of going to the cemetery.

Simple Cremation

Simple cremation is selected when no visitation is desired; families often have a gathering or visitation prior or following cremation. It is often times the least expensive mode of disposition.

Simple Burial or Graveside Service

This service type differs in that the ceremony takes place at the cemetery.

Memorial Service

This is a service without the deceased present. Visitation, Cremation or burial
