Service Options

Funeral planning can be a difficult process while grieving the loss of a loved one. But having a funeral provides those who are grieving a place to receive support, come to terms with their loss, say goodbye, and honor their loved one’s life. Being surrounded by family and friends lets everyone share stories and memories and creates a lasting support system as everyone begins their grief journey.



Direct Cremation

Direct cremation is a disposition option in which the body is cremated in the days immediately following the death, without a funeral service or visitation beforehand.

By placing cremated remains in multiple urns, family members who live in different locations can each have their loved one's final resting place close to them.

Direct Burial

A Direct Burial is when there is no family present and the funeral home and cemetery coordinate with each other. You can bury or entomb your loved one's cremated remains, as well. This can be in a family plot, memorial site, cremation niche or urn garden, or other indoor and outdoor locations. Please reach out to our staff for a detailed list of interment options.

Graveside Burial

A graveside service is a formal ceremony that takes place at the cemetery. This could be a ground burial or above-ground mausoleum. If the deceased was cremated, the urn is placed in a cremation niche, cremation bench, mausoleum, or ground.
