Comfort in Tradition

Familiar rites and rituals gives everyone peace-of-mind. A traditional funeral with an accompanying visitation looks and feels like it did years ago and brings comfort to all.

A Patriotic Tribute

Honoring a veteran can include a 21 rifle salute, a flag presentation ceremony, a graveside ceremony, and even the playing of taps. No matter what you choose to include, such a service always shows your gratitude for their sacrifice and dedication.

The Value of Coming Together

Even with a cremation, bringing family and friends together to share memories and to support one another can be done simply and elegantly. Offer everyone an opportunity to collectively begin the healing process.

Comfort Hearts and Nourish Connections

Throughout their lives, they cared for those they loved with good food, lovingly prepared. Now, celebrate that love by sharing their favorites in a relaxed gathering. A chili or seafood feast? Maybe desserts were their specialty. Whatever it was, gather together and savor the memories.

A Last Ride

There’s often a special connection between someone and their vehicle. Maybe it’s the fire truck they served on; maybe it’s the motorcycle they loved to ride on weekends. It might even be the love of a fine horse. Bring that love to life, by including that special relationship in the services.

Coming Home

There’s no place like home. Bringing family and friends together in a home or private garden focuses the emotions of comfort found in such a familiar setting. There may be no better place to say goodbye, because home is where the heart is.

A Sporting Celebration

Consider the sports fan. No matter what the sport, there’s an energy, and excitement to being a part of the scene. Bring that energy into the service by surrounding everyone in the favored team memorabilia, or possibly a tailgate party, and share in the traditional ‘game fever.’

A Treasured Keepsake

Bringing home such a gift of love can make a memorial service truly memorable. Gather together a beloved collection, whether teddy bears, tea cups, or fishing lures; and share them with the guests after the ceremony to let everyone leave with a memory they can keep forever.

Playing the Game

Poker, anyone? Maybe Bridge was their game. Or Chess. Whatever game they enjoyed, bring it into the service by staging a card party in their honor. Just think of the memories that will surface, as the games progress.

Taking the Stage

“All the world’s a stage, and all men and women merely players.” For the thespian, such a theatrical event would be the perfect end to a perfectly brilliant life. Bring up the lights, and honor the actor and the life they so enjoyed.

Into the Deep Blue

Eternal life as part of a barrier reef. For those of us who love the sea, there’s no better thought than our cremated remains providing shelter for the beautiful creatures of the deep. Create a permanent living legacy, to memorialize and honor your loved one.

Reach for the Stars

“Fly me to the moon; let me sing among those stars.” Many of us long to be able to travel among the planets of our solar system and out among the stars. Becoming part of the cosmos may be the perfect ‘send off’ for someone special.
