A traditional choice for a permanent resting place
Today there are more options than ever on how to celebrate a life lived. Choosing burial as your final disposition allows you to have a final resting place with options to have a personal celebration. We believe that no two people are alike and no two services should be alike either. We pride ourselves on providing high quality service at an affordable price.
Immediate Burial $2,250*
Our package charges for immediate burial include basic services of funeral director and staff, the local (within 10 miles) transfer of remains to the funeral home, the basic sheltering of the remains, the obtaining of necessary permits and authorizations, and local transportation to the cemetery, sanitary care and preparation of remains for identification. This charge does not include the use of facilities and staff for any visitation or ceremony, public or private, prior to burial, or any sheltering for days on which no post death activities occur. Nor does it include the actual cost of the grave at the cemetery, or the cemetery’s charges for opening and closing of the grave, any required outer burial container or cash disbursements, or anything not expressly stated as being provided.
*Price does not include the purchase or opening of a grave, funeral services at a location other than at our funeral home, or anything not specifically stated as being included. Many, but not all, cemeteries require an outer burial container (often referred to as a ‘burial vault’). If the cemetery of your choice requires the use of an outer burial container, that charge will also be added to this service.
Through traditional or contemporary services, many are turning to unique, personalized ways of honoring a life lived and aiding the grieving process. A personalized celebration gives you and your family something to concentrate on as you relive memories. We offer many ways to personalize a service. From serving your loved one’s favorite ice cream to releasing balloons, displaying memories through photo boards or even playing a tribute video, burials with celebrations have one focus in mind, celebrating the unique life lived.
Traditional services that generally include the following:
- Visitation with family and friends
- Funeral ceremony
- Burial of your loved one at the cemetery (may be private or public)
Location of the funeral ceremony and reception are of your choosing. We will go over available options during the arrangement process.
Services held at the gravesite at a cemetery. Graveside services can follow a traditional funeral or can be held as the only service event. Graveside services are often held as private gatherings of only close family and friends.
The Value of a Viewing
Whether or not an open casket is part of the celebration is an individual family choice. The main reason we have any “viewing” is because it allows people to have a physical presence to focus on when saying their goodbyes. Since most people are visually inclined by nature, it seems to help them see the person, for the death to be “real” to them and allows them to better focus on tidying up the loose ends that they have with this person. A funeral helps people begin to complete their relationship with the person who died, and sometimes seeing the body helps.
