The Funeral Service
Funerals are a gathering of family and friends after the death of a loved one. A viewing takes place in funeral homes and a mass may be said in a church or other house of worship. The funeral service offers people the opportunity to give each other support, to pay tribute to the deceased, and the chance to begin the mourning process.
A funeral can be a small get-together that is either formal with a mass said, or informal and can have either a casket or a cremation urn present at the viewing. At the viewing, or wake, family and friends gather together for support, to mourn, or celebrate a life well lived by the deceased. Our caring staff will be there with you during the planning of the funeral service and make this process as painless as is possible.
A celebration of someone’s life can help bring closure in a different way than a traditional ceremony can. A celebration of life is a way to personalize a memorial service with mementos, photos, music, and even items that your loved one enjoyed. Any item that had meaning to a person in their lifetime will have a place of its own in our funeral homes so others can catch a glimpse of the life you are memorializing.
