Our personnel are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond to your initial request for service. We will confer with you or your family to make arrangements, prepare and file necessary authorizations and permits, record vital statistics, prepare obituary notices, and coordinate with other service providers.
Many individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange and pre-fund 6for their final expenses before the need arises. Last year alone, more than one million people planned and paid for their final expenses ahead of time. The advantages make sense:
- Provides peace of mind
- Relieves your loved ones of unnecessary concern
- Reflects your expressed wishes
- Avoids a financial burden on your family
Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing. If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require embalming, such as direct cremation or immediate burial. Other preparation services include cosmetics, hairdressing, and special care for autopsy cases.
Contrary to what some people believe, cremation does not limit one's choices, but in fact, increase one's options. It need not be looked upon as being a break in family or religious traditions. Cremation, in fact, is only one part in a series of events that leads to memorialization. The choice of cremation in no way eliminates a funeral. A traditional or contemporary type of service is often planned to take place before the cremation process.
