All too often, families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one. What they don’t know is that a funeral or memorial service is an important part of the healing process.
Coming together with friends and family, whether in a formal funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation, the need for acknowledgement of the loss with family and friends is ever present. Together we can create a unique meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one. We offer families a beautiful setting in which to gather together with friends and family. With reception facilities and catering services, you can create an event that will be long remembered. A service that will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.
When your loved one has chosen to be buried, the ceremonies you design revolve around the casket being present. Traditions may be followed, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in the chapel. Or you could choose to have a more relaxed memorial service, even in the family home.
A private service at the graveside could then follow these more public events. But let’s just say this: there is no ‘hard and fast’ formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. We’re here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together, prior to your loved one's interment in a cemetery of your choice.
Cremation refers solely to the manner in which you or your loved one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. It doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service, because your need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to be cremated.
Create Healing Experiences
Losing someone you dearly loved can be emotionally devastating, and in the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be ‘easier’ to just take care of things as simply as possible. But, we hear it every day: easier isn’t always better. You must set the stage for the future by providing your family and friends with an opportunity to start the healing process.
You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over
We hope that you’ll honor your loved one in a way that you can look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor the life of someone you cared for. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a gift of a lifetime.
