It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
Designing Your Funeral
Create Healing Experiences
Losing someone you dearly loved can be emotionally devastating, and in the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be "easier" to just take care of things as simply as possible. But, we hear it every day; easier isn't always better. You must set the stage for the future by providing your family and friends with an opportunity to start the healing process.
You Can Never Go Back and Do It Over
We hope that you'll honor your loved one in a way that you can look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor the life of someone you cared for. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing....a gift of a lifetime.
Comfort in Tradition
Familiar rites and rituals give everyone peace of mind. A traditional funeral with an accompanying visitation looks and feels like it did years ago and brings comfort to all.
A Consistent Place of Healing
In our modern society, people aren't given enough time to grieve their losses. The pressures of work and financial concerns both can bring the bereaved back into the workplace far too soon. Having a permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the time following a death. Such a location is a focal point of memorialization. It provides a consistent place to go to remember your loved one, and to commemorate important occasions. It can help to make a birthday or anniversary less painful.
A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family's past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents can anchor children to their personal history.
The Value of Coming Together
Even with a cremation, bringing family and friends together to share memories and to support one another can be done simply and elegantly. Offer everyone an opportunity to collectively begin the healing process.
