Dealing with a loss or planning for yourself, burial may be a form of disposition that is more suitable to your lifestyle. There are four fundamental segments to consider when desiring burial: choosing embalming, picking a casket, and deciding on a cemetery and service that best represents the individual. Many of these segments have numerous choices and abundant combinations. The options for a casket alone include a well defined color, material, and thickness. Deciding on a cemetery can be even more complex. Comprised of different types of cemeteries; family, fraternal, municipal or religious, most will require specified burial spaces, monuments and outer burial containers. The funeral service also includes a range of choices. The funeral could very well be a service with or without remains present, have a visitation, or as a more creative option could be held on a ship that concludes with burial at sea.

Either way, the abundant selection presents a great opportunity in specializing a burial package. Though, the ample choices may be vast, our staff has experience assisting families with items and services that fit your lifestyle and tacitly serve your feelings to the fullest and deepest ability.

Additionally, when choosing items keep those burial segments in mind and prepare some ideas and requests. Burial is to be an experience that is remembered and regarded as a traditional but personal tribute. In doing so, we will take the time to communicate your sincerity and sensitivity and ultimately strive to make it easier in expressing the unique characteristics that is desired in a final ceremony.
