Honoring and celebrating the life of your loved one are the cornerstones of healing after loss.
It's All about the Relationship
"A Heart is not judged by how much you love but by how much you are loved by others" TheWizard of Oz
Honoring the life of your loved one means you value the relationship you shared. We look forward to helping you decide how to celebrate that bond, and honor the unique individual you've lost. We can make suggestions to enhance your tribute ideas. Together we will create a fitting and memorable event finding strength in sharing and comfort in connection.
Your family photographs are skillfully blended with wonderful graphic images and music, to create an elegantly emotive cinematic video. It can be an integral part of any funeral or memorial service. After the ceremony, the video is sure to become a treasured family keepsake. You can request copies so that you may give them as gifts to family and friends.
The traditional newspaper obituary is quickly being replaced by the memorial website. We’ve taken the concept further than anyone else. Our memorial sites are not just a repository of family photos and videos; they’re Web 2.0 tools for connecting with family and friends, all in honor of your loved one. We invite you to take a tour, so you can see its power to celebrate connections, honor a life, and record the love you shared.
Private Family Lounges
We are fortunate to have two large family lounges so that every family has their own private room to bring in refreshments and food to enjoy during the visitation. We also can also assist in ordering food from local caterers.
We have a garden alongside the funeral home, offering a retreat for family and guests to reflect and share memories.
Dove or Balloon Releases
We can arrange a dove release, symbolizing you are now releasing your loved one to the heavens to journey home, or a release of balloon into the skies when we are at the graveside at the cemetery.
Bagpipers / Mariachi Band / Harpist
Music is one of the most important aspects of a service, either at the funeral home or during the ceremony. Bagpipers or mariachi bands can be commissioned to welcome the funeral procession into church and/or play at the graveside.
And anything we didn't mention...
The above items are only a small sample of what is available. We want to help create a celebration that truly represents your loved one's essence.
Anything that might best represent your loved one, the memories you and others have, and the impact they had on everyone's lives is possible.
