Where to Start

Providing Personal, Professional & Caring Service

When you first begin the process of designing a funeral, the decisions you will face might seem overwhelming at first. We are here to help you tackle the choices one by one and to make the journey one of love, healing, and life celebration. The process can be broken down into two stages: decisions regarding the service and how you would like to honor your loved one's life; and decisions regarding how you would like to care for your loved one's physical remains.

 

Designing a Service
Designing Funeral ServiceWhether it's formal or informal, traditional or offbeat, a funeral provides an opportunity for family and friends to gather and support one another in taking the first steps of their healing journey. A service can incorporate photos, music, poetry, or art in the celebration of a life well-lived. There are endless possibilities for what the service can be, and we are honored to go above and beyond to meet your personalized and specific requests.

Our staff is experienced in understanding and graciously accommodating the needs of all beliefs, faiths, lifestyles, and relationships. We are here to answer your questions and guide you through the decisions you will need to make, and will encourage you to take your time to figure out the most meaningful and fitting way to honor your loved one.

 


Caring for a Loved One's Physical Remains
Once you have chosen how you would like to celebrate your loved one's life journey, you will have to decide how you would like to care for their physical remains. This can be a difficult or emotional choice for you and your family, and we will provide you with the information you need to help you make the decision that is right for your loved one and for your family. Once you have chosen between burial and cremation, there are a few additional decisions to be made:

  • For a burial, you will need to select a casket and a cemetery, and choose between a ground Urnsburial and entombment in a mausoleum.

 

  • For cremation, you will need to select an urn and choose whether to bury, entomb, or scatter the cremated remains, as well as where you would like to do so.


No matter which path you decide to take, we will be there to support you and assist you in exploring your options and making an informed decision that feels right for you and your loved one.
