Types of Burial Memorials
Design a site to express a life and gratify the living.
Express the life of your loved one and create a place for family and friends to gather.
We can help you design a meaningful and healing service to take place at the graveside. These services can take place outdoors or under cover of a tent. We’ll guide you through the process of personalizing both the service and the site in multiple ways. Working with your Funeral Director, you can select readings, speakers and create spiritual moments. You can include military honors, masonic rites and religious leadership. When it comes to memorialization, we offer many options. Your selection may include a flat memorial, upright monument, mausoleum plate or private estates. Please reach us any time to begin the conversation. We’re here to share our expertise, with professionalism and compassion.
A graveside service takes place after a funeral and can be a profound healing experience.
Funerals often take place at the funeral chapel or at your place of religious worship. In that case, an internment and committal service can follow at the graveside. These are important gatherings to commemorate a life and mark the end of physical closeness. Family and friends gather to commit a loved one to the earth and say final farewells together. A committal service is symbolic and a helpful step in healing.
Together with your funeral professional, we can guide you through all of the arrangements.
Burials are often an unexpected need, and we can handle every detail should this option make sense for you and your family. Please call us any time to discuss your needs. Our mission is to ease your burden.
