This type of service is usually held without the body present to remember the deceased and to help the family during their time of grief. This type of service is selected when a person is direct cremated with no visitation or funeral service prior to the cremation, or could be selected when a person donates their body for scientific study. This service can be held at our funeral home, a church, another type of gathering facility, or the graveside.
A burial service, conducted at the site of the grave, tomb, mausoleum, at which the body of the decedent is buried or cremated at the conclusion.
Sometimes, the burial service will immediately follow the funeral, in which case a funeral procession travels from the site of the funeral or memorial service to the burial site. Other times, the burial service takes place at a later time, when the final resting place is ready.
If the decedent served in a branch of the Armed forces, military rites are often accorded at the burial service.
In many religious traditions, pallbearers, usually males who are close, but not immediate relatives (such as cousins, nephews or grandchildren) or friends of the decedent, will carry the casket from the chapel (of a funeral home or church) to the hearse, and from the hearse to the site of the burial service.
The definition of Cremation is: a process which reduces the body by heat to small bone fragments. After this process is complete, the fragments are removed and the remaining fragments are pulverized and reduced to the consistency of coarse sand or crushed seashells.
We offer several cremation packages to you. From Direct Cremation services to Cremation with visitation and a traditional funeral or celebration of life service. With the visitation service, a family may purchase a cremation casket or we offer a hardwood rental casket, in which the interior is encased with a fiberboard cremation container, and at the conclusion of the services we remove the cremation container that is inside of the rental casket and transport your loved one to the crematory. After the cremation process is complete, you have the choice to keep the cremains with you or we can arrange for burial or entombment services. We also offer cremation service packages that contain different choices of outer cremation containers, cremation caskets and urns.
The cremains of your loved one are placed in a temporary container for you. If you so desire you can purchase an urn for safekeeping of your loved one. Some cemeteries require certain types of cremation containers and/or cremation vaults for earth burial, and we have many choices to assist you with those requirements.
