Experts agree that the benefits of a service are for those who are left behind after a death. A "closure" of sorts must occur to help survivors adjust to their loss and recognize that a death has occurred. A memorial service provides the opportunity for friends and family to celebrate the life that was lived and allow the healing process to begin.
It's important to recognize that funerals and memorial ceremonies are for the living ... for those who are affected by the loss of a loved one. A funeral is similar to other ceremonies in our lives. Like a graduation ceremony, a wedding, a baptism, and a bar mitzvah, a funeral is a rite of passage by which we recognize an important event that distinguishes our lives.
The funeral declares that a death has occurred. It celebrates the life that has been lived, and offers family and friends the opportunity to pay tribute to their loved one.
Funeral costs vary depending on the funeral home and type of service selected. There are two types of costs associated with a funeral: (1) services provided by the funeral home and (2) merchandise such as a casket or urn. Contact Us for a copy of our General Price List.
Every family is different, and not everyone wants the same type of funeral. Funeral practices are influenced by religious and cultural traditions, costs and personal preferences. These factors help determine whether the funeral will be elaborate or simple, public or private, religious or secular, and where it will be held. They also influence whether the body will be present at the funeral, if there will be a viewing or visitation, and if so whether the casket will be opened or closed.
We understand the value of our services and the importance of personalization, which is why we offer a wide choice of personalization services to help make each service as unique as possible.
We of course welcome any suggestions, questions, or requests that you may have.
