A full-service burial typically includes three main components:
- A viewing or a gathering, where family and friends can come together to pay respect and say their goodbye to the deceased. (A viewing implies an open casket, while a gathering is commonly done with a closed casket.)
- A service, which can be adapted to reflect the family’s wishes or religious affiliation.
- The burial itself, which typically occurs at the cemetery.
We are happy to personalize each component of your burial service to meet your preferences. For example, you may wish to showcase photographs or videos at the gathering, display items of particular importance, or hold a musical performance during the service. However you wish to honor your loved one, we can make it happen. In our four generations of service to local families, we have seen and accommodated many special requests, from superhero pall bearers to full military honors, and more.
