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

On behalf of my family, I would like to thank the Hathaway team, specifically Alex Gross, for coordinating the funeral of our father and husband, George J. Padrenoss this past April. Alex did an outstanding job, keeping in touch with our family from the days prior to Dad's passing, arranging the transport of his body from Florida back to Massachusetts, and the days following his funeral. Our mother, particularly, still talks about how smoothly everything went thanks to Alex. The video which was put together was amazing; and I apologize, I have forgotten the name of the woman who put it together, but thank you, it was perfect. When Dad was in the dying process, we kept telling him to put his waders on, and go fishing. She brought it all together in the video perfectly. Thank you for giving us some smiles during a difficult time.
