What Are Some Burial Options? 

  • Graveside Services: These gatherings tend to be more intimate in nature. Graveside services can include everything from having a religious leader conduct the ceremony, family members speak, masonic rites, military honors, music, a tent and chairs. This is an individual event.
  • Committal Services: This is a service where family and friends gather to bring their loved one to their final resting place in conjunction with other ceremonies at the funeral home and/or church. This again, may be as elaborate or simple as you envision incorporating the military, speakers, music, tent, chairs, etc.
  • Immediate Burials: For those who find themselves in need of a burial service only. 
*For Unexpected Deaths, Please Call 911*
