Designing a Service

Designing a Service

When you first begin the process of designing a funeral, the decisions you'll face might seem overwhelming at first. We're here to help you tackle the choices one by one and make the journey one of love, healing, and life celebration.

The process can be broken down into two major decisions:


First: The way that feels right to honor your loved one's life.


Second: How you'd like to care for your loved one's physical remains. 

Most people think this decision can only go two ways: burial or cremation. However, there are many ways to combine these two standard ways into what works best for your family's needs.


This can be a difficult or emotional choice for you and your family, no matter how you choose to care for your loved one, we pride ourselves on our ability to offer you a variety of options to fit what you want. Whether it's formal or informal, traditional or offbeat, a funeral provides an opportunity for family and friends to gather and support one another in taking the first steps of their healing journey. 


A service can take place in any setting:

  • Your home
  • Our facilities
  • Churches
  • Outdoors

Services can be unique to incorporate:

  • Music
  • Art
  • Poetry
  • Hobbies
  • Occupation
  • Civic Affiliations

A permanent resting place could be a:

  • Cemetery
  • Mausoleum
  • Columbarium
  • Even your loved one's home if cremation takes place


There are endless possibilities for what the service can be in the celebration of a life well-lived, and we're honored to go above and beyond in our duty to meet your personalized and specific requests.

Our staff is experienced in understanding and graciously accommodating the needs of all beliefs, faiths, lifestyles, and relationships. We're here to answer your questions and guide you through the decisions you'll need to make, and will encourage you to take your time to figure out the most meaningful and fitting way to honor your loved one.
