The value of the Funeral
Meaningful funeral ceremonies are rites of passage that help survivors accept a life without the person who dies.
According to noted grief educator Alan Wolfelt, the funeral ceremony helps mourners:
- Acknowledge someone has died
- Say good bye
- Remember the person who died and encourage us to share those memories with others
- Affirm the worth of their relationship with the person who died
- Provide a social support system
- Search for meaning of life and death
- Offer continuity and hope for the living
Without a funeral, mourners often miss the sense of closure.
Please feel free to browse our pages to learn more about pre-planning a funeral and grief support, as well as the traditional funeral and cremation services that we have to offer. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at anytime, we are available by phone or e-mail, or drop by the office in person. We are always here to help.
We understand that it is not always possible to attend a service or visitation in person, so we encourage you to use our beautifully designed interactive online tributes to pay your respects. Leave a condolence, share a memory, post a photo, light a candle and more!

Grief never ends, but it changes.
Many people plan for life events such as weddings and vacations well in advance, but many people do not plan for something that is certain to happen, their funeral. While most people do not want to think about their own morality, the time to pre-plan your funeral is now.
The primary advantages of pre-arranging your funeral is to relieve the burden on your loved ones in an already emotional time, and to ensure your funeral is carried out according to your wishes, eliminating the task of second-guessing what you would have wanted.
Taking the time now to arrange your funeral is one less thing your loved ones will need to worry about once you’ve passed. Pre-planning and pre-paying your funeral is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give to your family.
It's a passage, not a place to stay.
The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect and than others seem to think.
These articles will help you understand something about the grief and how we can help ourselves and others through the difficult process.
If you are struggling and feel you would benefit from additional help, please contact us at our funeral home. Our staff is very familiar with the grief resources in our community, and can refer you to local support groups. We are here to help.
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith.
