We offer:

COMPLETE FUNERAL SERVICE WITH CREMATION

If you decide to have your loved one cremated or if it was the request of the individual, viewing is still an option when choosing this service. Often, families choose to have visitation with or without a church service prior to being cremated. Depending on the circumstance, embalming may still be necessary when selecting this service.

MEMORIAL SERVICE

A Memorial Service is a service without a visitation and the remains of your loved one are not present at the time of the service. At this service, you may choose to have the urn present. This ceremony can be held at the funeral home or a church.
