OUR 3 LEVELS OF CARE
Each package is available whether you choose burial or cremation for the deceased.
This package focuses on caring for the deceased but does not include any form of public visitation, gathering, or funeral service.
The deceased will be brought into our care and kept in our secure care center until we receive the authorization to proceed from the county health department.
The immediate family will have the opportunity for a Private Farewell with the deceased. This gives family members the chance to say their goodbyes and support each other during a difficult time.
A Casual Farewell is for families who want to do something but do not want a funeral. This package includes everything in the Basics Only package, plus a casual event for family and friends at our funeral home or a place of your choice.
This event begins with a gathering of family and friends where we focus on telling the story of their life while everyone visits. The Casual Farewell then concludes with a short ceremony to acknowledge their loss and celebrate their life. People often tell us that this event feels more like a family reunion than a funeral.
The deceased is typically not present at a Casual Farewell; however, you can add this service if you wish.
This package is for those families who want a traditional funeral at an affordable price. It includes all the elements of a funeral with a focus on celebrating their life.
Our full-service funerals are a little more casual than those at other area funeral homes. For example, instead of a formal receiving line where you express condolences and quickly leave, you will find family and friends mingling, telling stories, and reconnecting.
The deceased is typically present at a Full-Service Funeral, and we will make sure that they look their best.
