Traditional Burial

Funeral rites and rituals have developed over thousands of years. Every civilization celebrates funerals in one way or another. There is a good reason: people WILL experience grief over the death of a loved one, and a healthy grieving process can only begin by accepting that the death HAS OCCURRED. The best way toward acceptance is viewing the deceased individual and publicly celebrating the life of that person.

The Value of the Funeral

  • Acknowledges that a life has been lived. 

  • Allows people to remember and honor their loved one in a special way. 

  • Serves as central gathering place for family and friends to give emotional  and physical support to one another.

  • Provides the final closure for the bereaved. 

  • Initiates the grieving process. 

  • Confirms the reality and finality of death. 

  • Encourages mourners to face the pain of their loss and express their thoughts and feelings. 

  • Helps survivors to better cope with their grief and enables them to move  forward with their lives.

Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D

There are many ways to celebrate a funeral:

  • Traditional funeral service: A time-honored way to memorialize your  loved one, at our funeral home or your church

  • Contemporary funeral service: many people want to have a "different"  funeral service. A way to honor their loved one in special ways. 

  • Our  funeral directors have the patience to help you make the right decisions.
