Understanding Burial Choices


We "The McKenzie Family" believe in the traditional funeral, because it best serves the needs of family and friends. We want to help you create an event meaningful to you that acknowledges and celebrates the life of a loved one lost.

 

The service/gathering is a meaningful expression for the family, and it gives friends and associates an opportunity to offer their tributes in the way of flowers, cards, memorials to churches or organizations and provide support to the family.

It is a time to tell the story of a life.

Remember:

"No two people are the same,

so no two funerals should be the same"

 

This is a time for all family and friends, young and elderly, to gather together and applaud and rejoice in their loved one's life. To laugh, to cry and to celebrate and bring healing to the living.

Your loved one had dreams, beliefs, strengths, weaknesses, activities and treasures that brought them joy. We try to share and bring some of these unique qualities that we all have to the gathering. It is a time to tell and share the story of a life it becomes the bridge between the past and the future.

Visitation/Viewing is arranged for family and friends before the day of service and/or day of service. The service may be held in our Funeral Home, Church or other location depending on the family's preference and taking into account the number of people expected to attend.

The casket is present at the service, memorial boards incorporating family pictures may be displayed along with memorabillia and/or treasured items of the deceased. Eulogies, special music, poems/special readings, soloists, video tributes and flowers bring together the uniqueness of the person who has passed. A funeral procession to the cemetery or mausoleum follows the service or a private family interment can be arranged.

A reception may take place before or after the burial, and can either take place at the reception facilities of the funeral home, church, hotel or family home.
