It is important to recognize that funerals are for the living ... for those who have suffered the trauma of losing a loved one. It is through the funeral process that a number of emotional needs are met. The funeral declares that a death has occurred, commemorates the life that has been lived, and offers family and friends the opportunity to pay tribute to their loved one.

Throughout the ages, people have relied on the comforting rituals and ceremonies of funerals to move them through their grief. Consumer research and grief experts suggest meaningful ceremonies provide closure. But most importantly, the funeral is a vital part of the process that allows the bereaved to adjust to an abruptly altered life. We encourage you to consult with us regarding a variety of ceremonies that will help you and your family begin the essential grieving process.
