Cremation Service Options


Setting The Tone

There has been a subtle shift in the tone of funerals in recent years, away from mournful toward more celebratory occasions. Much of this change can be attributed to preplanning, which enables individuals to dictate the details surrounding their own passing. By assigning themselves the responsibility of planning their own funerals and not burdening their families with the task, pre-planners are better able to frame the "event" in their own terms. Many see it as a chance to emphasize various aspects of their lives that made them unique. For instance, jazz lovers may opt for a jazz ensemble to play at their funerals; others may plan for friends and family to attend a post funeral dinner celebration. The possibilities are endless.

Celebratory funerals help us to cope with our loss while getting us in touch with the value of a life well lived. We can assist you and your family members in planning and coordinating all of the details of a funeral service. We understand that every family has a personal needs and preferences. That's why we have built a full service funeral establishment offering personal personal, distintive and affordable services to individuals and families.

The impact pf a child's death can affect many people including the extended family, school friends and their families and teachers. There are many ways you can help yourself cope during this time. Ask for help and support from family, friends or a support group, and try to express whatever you are feeling, be it anger, guilt or sadness. Accept that death is beyond your control. For more information about bereavement groups, call us.

With advance planning, there are several important factors to consider. You will want to think about any religious practices that are expected by your faith. You should consider your family members and their desire to participate in the service by not over planning ahead of time. Instead, make general suggestions that can be adjusted to make the funeral more meaningful to the participants. For more information contact us.
