Where to Start

Gentle Care is Our Cornerstone

When you begin designing a funeral, the decisions you'll face might seem overwhelming. We're here to help you tackle the choices one by one and make the journey one of love, healing, and life celebration. The process can be broken down into two stages: decisions regarding the service and how you'd like to honor your loved one's life, and decisions regarding how you'd like to care for your loved one's physical remains.


Designing a Service
Designing Funeral ServiceWhether it's formal or informal, traditional or offbeat, a funeral provides an opportunity for family and friends to gather and support one another. A service can take place in any setting - at your home, outdoors, or at our facilities, for example - and can incorporate music, poetry, or art in the celebration of a life well-lived. There are endless possibilities for what the service can be, and we're honored to go above and beyond in our duty to meet your personalized and specific requests.

Our staff is experienced in understanding and graciously accommodating the needs of all beliefs, faiths, lifestyles, and relationships. We're here to answer your questions and guide you through the decisions you'll need to make. You can take your time figuring out the best way to honor your loved one and incorporate the elements that you and your family find meaningful.


Caring for a Loved One's Physical Remains
Once you've chosen how you'd like to celebrate your loved one's life, the next decision you'll face is about how you'd like to care for their physical remains. This can be a difficult and emotional choice.  We'll provide you with the information you need to make the right decision for your loved one and your family. Once you've chosen between burial and cremation, there are a few additional decisions:

  • For a burial, you'll need to select a casket and a cemetery, and choose between a ground Urnsburial and entombment in a mausoleum.


  • For cremation, you'll need to select an urn and choose whether to bury, entomb, or scatter the cremated remains.

We will be there with you, to answer any questions and provide you with everything you need.
