Funeral Service Options
The gathering of family and friends to honor the life of a loved one is an important step 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 ‘celebration of life.
There are many aspects to consider when planning a service, and we are here to help you navigate the tough decisions. Some things to consider are the cremation container, the urn to be used, and the service location just to name a few. You can also choose to have a religious leader or a non-religious 'celebrant' officiate the service.
