Visitations, often with the body present, are an informal time to say goodbye. Sometimes the family is present
to greet friends and share memories.
The funeral service is a more formal celebration of life. The service can be held anywhere you choose. Usually
a clergy or speaker leads the service. Family members may also wish to share memories, a poem, or a eulogy. Music personalizes
the services to the individual's life and can be in the form of vocalists, instrumentals, or recorded music. Please contact

The graveside service is a time for final goodbyes. This can include military rites or other lodge services.
