Customizing Tributes

We are committed to memorializing each life with dignity and distinction!

For centuries, funerals have helped us say goodbye. No matter what kind of ceremony you are planning, it helps to understand the parts of a meaningful service. Each element serves a unique purpose and plays an important role. When you put the elements together, you create a ceremony deserving of the special life that was lived.

Creating Meaningful & Personalized Services

Catering & Receptions

Food provides nourishment and comfort unlike anything else. Memories of holiday meals, birthday dinners and secret family recipes create a special bond between the people and the food we love. We can help you celebrate that love by sharing those food favorites in a relaxed gathering.

Eulogies & Readings

Often the eulogy is the most remembered and meaningful element of a funeral ceremony. Readings also help by allowing us to acknowledge reality and move toward the pain of the loss.

Fondest Memories Program

Families and friends attending the service will have an opportunity to complete a simple notecard reflecting their fondest memory of your loved one before placing it in the basket. After the service, we collect the cards and present them to the family. Our Fondest Memories Remembrance Program is offered free of charge as a valuable, extended level of caring service to help our families find closure with the loss of their loved one and to begin the healing process. 

Memorial Stationery

Programs and prayer cards often become a treasured take-home keepsake for those who attend funeral or memorial services. Our funeral home has an elegant selection of stationery products, including bookmarks and register books, that can be personalized in tribute of your loved one. 

Military Honors

Funeral Honors are available for all honorably discharged veterans. Discharge papers (DD-214) are required to be sent at least 48 hours prior to funeral service. All honorably discharged veterans are entitled to Taps and a flag folding team. 

Online Memorial Sites

When someone we love dies, we often feel the need to share their story and the story of our loss with family, friends and our extended communities. We offer a place that memorializes loved ones through a series of interactive webpages featuring obituaries, service information, photos, condolences and much more. 

Photo Tribute Videos

Combining beautiful music and your treasured photographs, we will create a personalized tribute video that will truly honor your loved one. This visual walk down memory lane is a touching and meaningful addition to any visitation, funeral or memorial service. In the days, weeks and months after the loss, many find comfort in watching the keepsake DVD at home with family and friends. 

Release Ceremonies

The release of doves, balloons, bubbles or butterflies are symbolic of the spirit's journey to find eternal peace above. All provide a touching and visual way to conclude your loved one's funeral or memorial services. 

Special Music

During the funeral ceremony, music helps us think about our loss and embrace our painful feelings of grief. Music is an important part of many social rituals. 

Table Displays

Many families bring in personal items to showcase their loved one's passions or hobbies (fishing, gardening, sports, art, etc.), as well as framed photographs and family albums. These tabletop displays give mourners a good place to gather and share memories during a visitation or gathering.
