Traditional

Families may choose to have a public visitation period followed by services and interment. Or they may opt for a more private and quaint gathering of the family along with a personalized burial of your loved one. In any regard, there are no restrictions as to what can be arranged; the typical requirements of embalming, vault, etc. can be eliminated, allowing for a more natural burial: simple yet meaningful.


Full Service Burial

A visitation and viewing period of your loved one to create a quiet informal moment for friends and family members to pay their respects individually followed by a ceremony in which loved ones together in a formal setting share comfort in music, readings and memories. This is usually followed by a committal service at a cemetery commemorating the final resting place providing the opportunity for greater closure and acceptance.


Limited Service Burial

A memorial ceremony in which loved ones together in a formal setting share comfort in music, reading and memories, this service does not have a visitation or viewing period of the deceased and a private burial usually occurs prior to the formal ceremony.


Direct Burial
