Burying a loved one is always an emotional experience. The nature of the service itself can be modified in accordance with the deceased’s wishes, or with the general preferences of the family. We do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to our burial services, but rather we create the kind of mood that families request—while ensuring that, regardless of the particulars, each burial service is intimate, affirming, and beautiful.
Some specific burial options include:
Graveside funeral services, which can include involvement from a religious leader, masonic rites, military ritual, or readings from family members.
Committal services, in which loved ones gather to commit a loved one to the Earth—a symbolic gesture of healing.
Immediate burials, for families who have a sudden and unexpected need to bury a loved one.
Cremation services, like burial services, look different from one family to the next, but always provide a meaningful way to honor a deceased loved one. We work with families to ensure cremation services that are in line with their beliefs, values, and wishes. We also provide family members with different options for preserving and honoring the cremated remains of their loved one—including urns, Columbariums, cremation grave markers, and more. Options are also available to place cremated remains alongside cherished mementos—such as photographs—or even within cremation benches or rocks.
Whatever kind of service you choose, we want to ensure that it fulfills all the wishes of your family and your deceased loved one. Please contact us to discuss these options further.
