Funeral Service Options
Family and friends getting together to honor a loved one’s life is one of the most important steps in the grieving and healing process. You may opt to have a traditional religious or military service, or as more and more people are doing, you can choose to have a non-traditional ‘life celebration’.
Decisions need to be made about the location of the funeral, the choice of casket or urn and who the pallbearers should be. Another decision to make is who will be officiating the service. You can choose to have a minister (or other religious leader) or a celebrant officiate the service. The difference between a minister and a celebrant is a celebrant is non-denominational.
Please visit Family Connections, this is private, password-protected website just for your family to prepare for the arrangement appointment. At this private site, you’ll see some of the choices that you have and some of the decisions that you’ll have to make. You can also review some of the biographical information that we’ll discuss during the arrangements appointment. This is completely optional and available if you want to use it.
Whatever you choose, some sort of service is expected from family and friends of the deceased. We are here to help create a unique and memorable service that people will remember fondly for years to come.
