About Burials

A funeral service followed by a burial or cremation is the most traditional. However, over the past several years, families have opted to have the cemetery service first, followed by a celebration of life–creating a unique twist on the “traditional funeral”.

It can be specialized in various ways – a family visitation (viewing), prayer servicecemetery service, or a full funeral service. There are many options and all can be personalized to your liking.

Usually a visitation and/or prayer service before the funeral is held with a funeral service (ie. Mass of Christian Burial, Divine Liturgy, Celebration of Life) following. Customarily, the casket is present at both events.

Following the funeral service is the interment/entombment at the final resting place. Our professional staff will guide you through the various choices available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Basic Info

What is considered a "green burial"?
The Green Burial Council believes cemeteries, preserves, and burial grounds can broadly be considered green if they meet the following criteria: caring for the dead with minimal environmental impact that aids in the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions, protection of worker health, and the restoration and/or preservation of habitat. Green burial necessitates the use of non-toxic and biodegradable materials, such as caskets, shrouds, and urns. Contact us for more details on this!
What is the purpose of embalming?
Embalming is a process used to sanitize and temporarily preserve the body of a person who has passed away. It can also enhance the appearance of a person that has suffered damage from an accident or illness. By preserving the body through embalming, we can give you and your family time to make personalized and meaningful arrangements, including a viewing if desired.
Who should make the funeral arrangements?
The person with the legal authority to make funeral arrangements is the Executor of the Will. Sometimes, by mutual agreement, the authority to make the arrangements is passed on to someone in the family or a friend of the family. You should be aware whoever signs the funeral service agreement is financially responsible for the funeral.

Service Info

What is a viewing?
A viewing—also known as “visitation,” a “wake,” or “calling hours”—can involve an open or closed casket, and is seen as a vital part of the grieving process. Having a loved one present often helps family and friends to accept the reality of their loss, especially for those who may not have seen him or her in a while. The opportunity to come to terms with the death and say a final farewell is an important step on the road to closure and healing.
Should I bring my children to the funeral?
You should use your judgment to determine whether your child is old enough to comprehend death, or whether attending the funeral will be meaningful to them. It’s important for children to be allowed to express their grief and share in this important ritual. If you bring young children, explain beforehand what they will see and experience. If your child becomes restless, it is acceptable protocol to exit the service and return when you feel ready.
Can I supply my own flowers for the service?
Yes you can. However, for your convenience, you may choose to order from our in-house florist who can design a floral arrangement package to meet your requirements.
