The needs and expectations of our families are changing and we've responded with funeral service options tailored to these new expectations.
Two generations ago, traditional funerals
(visitation, funeral service and service at the cemetery) were common. It was what everyone expected.
But, as the demand for cremation services
increased, there has been a shift in the types of services available. Many more families are choosing cremation and holding a memorial service
afterwards. Family members and friends still came together to pay their respects to the deceased and find emotional support but they did so in less formal ways.
Today, another funeral service option, the celebration of life service
, has become quite popular because there are no limits to the how, where, and when the life of a loved one can be celebrated.
