Personalizing Services

We know that every family we serve is unique, and we strive to make each service a personal tribute to the life that has been lived. We provide a wide variety of choices that will help fulfill a family's wishes, from a traditional funeral to a personalized service that celebrates a loved one's hobbies and interests.

The following are ideas that you may use to personalize a service:

  • photographic collages
  • displays of personal memorabilia, such as awards, trophies, or favorite pastime items, such as garden tools
  • the reading of personal notes by family and friends during the service
  • service folders & registry books that reflect personal style and interests
  • music selections from our extensive library or your personal favorites
  • live musicians
  • special customs particular to different faiths, ethnic groups, and fraternal organizations
  • displays of uniforms and equipment for government employees
  • have motorcycles in the procession for a motorcycle enthusiast or have a cowboy's horse lead the procession for a cowboy
  • bagpiper- for many the stirring sound of bagpipes highlights the reverent and sacred nature of a funeral.
  • A personalized video tribute.
  • Special military honors for a veteran.

 

Our funeral directors are committed to helping you create a special tribute to your loved one that will honor a life well-lived. We encourage you to share your ideas, customs and wishes with us.
