Burial

Burial 
Many families choose burial as an option because it provides a physical place to remember a loved one. Visiting this physical location can bring comfort and peace when mourning, whether that is days or years after a loved one's death. For some, there is also a sense of closeness and connection felt when visiting a burial site which can help with healing.    

Visitation/Viewing 
A visitation, also known as a wake or viewing, is often the first time family and friends gather together after the death of a loved one. It is a time when memories are shared, condolences are expressed, and comfort found when surrounded by friends and family. A visitation can take place at one of our locations, but can also be held at a church, a family member’s home or at another location that was important to the deceased. A visitation provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the life that was lived through personalization like picture displays, cherished memorability, videos and so many more. A visitation can be an open or closed casket and one of our funeral directors can guide you in making the decision that is right for you. 

Funeral 
Following the visitation, a funeral service takes place and is another opportunity for family and friends to come together and remember the love they shared for the deceased. A funeral service can be held in a variety of locations including a church, funeral home or a location that was special to the deceased and their family. 

Burial 
A burial, also known as final disposition or committal service, is when the deceased is brought to their final resting place and where family and friends gather for a brief service. A burial can take place whether the deceased is placed in a casket or cremation urn. This is also a time when beautiful and colorful flowers are placed upon the casket or around the burial site.

Testimonials

Michael Roberts took care of the services for both of my parents. He made my mother’s services as painless as possible during such a difficult time. Three years later I knew he was the only person I would trust for my father’s services. Thank you so much for making this terrible process as simple as possible!
