Funeral Issues

This section of our web site will deal with an ever-evolving content of funeral and related issues. This area will soon be full text searchable and we hope will contain answers to any and all questions or concerns you might have. We will include a large number of questions that we receive through our "Ask the Director" section located on this site.

We believe that a better understanding of what is involved in the funeral process and the options available, will allow you to make a much more informed decision saving both confusion and compounded grief at the time of a loss.


Embalming
We use embalming today for two primary reasons - to allow adequate time between death and burial to observe social customs such as visitations and funeral services, and to prevent the spread of infection. Cosmetic work is often used for aesthetic reasons.
Burial
This page, and the one on cremation, may be especially difficult for you, yet deciding between burial and cremation is one of the first choices you must make. It's your decision!
Cremation
No casket is legally required for cremation, just a simple container, which is strong enough to hold the body. This could be a box of rough boards, press-board, or heavy cardboard.
Visitation
A visitation is when the body is laid out in the casket (which may be open or closed) before the service so that mourners may come to "visit."
Memorial Services
A memorial service is a service without the body present and can vary in ceremony and procedures according to the community and religious affiliations.
Meaningful Services
Today, a funeral can be as unique as the individual who is being honored. From simple touches like displaying personal photographs to events created around a favorite pastime, funerals can reflect any aspect of a person's life and personality.
