Personalizing Services

We know that every family we serve is unique, and we strive to make each service a personal tribute to the life that has been lived. We provide a wide variety of choices that will help fulfill a family's wishes, from a traditional funeral to a personalized service that celebrates a loved one's hobbies and interests.

The following are ideas that you may use to personalize a service:

Video Tributes

Gather photos of your loved one and we will create a lasting tribute on DVD that can be viewed during visitation or a service. Additional copies of the video tribute can be purchased for family and friends. A maximum of 75 photos can be used for your tribute.

 

Balloon Release

As the balloons slowly drift gently upward it leaves us with a memory that lasts a lifetime. Our staff would be more than happy to make the Balloon Release a part of your meaningful ceremony.

 

Dove Release

As these beautiful doves fly into the sky with a burst of energy it reminds us of the soul's ascent into the heaven, and the abundant life that blesses each one of us. The Dove Release is most meaningful for graveside services. Our staff would be more than happy to make the Dove Release a part of your meaningful ceremony.

 

Personalized Printed Material

Whether you wish to have photos included on memorial folders or a family prayer or quotation included on prayer cards the options and choices are yours make. Many choices of register books, memorial folders, prayer cards and thank you notes are available to customize as you desire.

 

Memorabilia Display Tables

Any special photographs, personal memorabilia and other items will be beautifully displayed to reflect the true personality of your loved one.  In the past, items such as golf clubs, baseball mitts, ballet shoes, artwork and motorcycle helmets have been displayed.

 

Bag Piper Musician

Let the enchanting sound of the highland bagpipes be a presence at your funeral service. You may request that the bagpiper escort the casket from the funeral coach to the gravesite or that he play off in the distance before and after services. Arrangements may also be made for the bagpiper to play at chapel, church or memorial services. Please contact our staff about adding a bag pipe musician to your funeral service.

 

Memorial Markers

Our funeral directors will guide you through the process of selecting the perfect memorial marker/headstone for your loved one.  There are many styles and options to consider and choose from when making this decision.

 

Website Obituary 

An on-line obituary is a great way to celebrate a loved ones life. Family and friends can leave guestbook condolences, view photos, and more. The obituary is on-line so it will always be accessible. The obituary can contain all service and memorial information for easy organization and viewing.

Our on-line obituaries also have a link to SharedBook® allowing anyone the ability to create a book filled with the decedents information, guestbook condolences, and pictures. The on-line program gives you the chance to create a custom book that can be cherished forever. The SharedBook® makes a wonderful gift to remember a loved one.

 

Military Honors

"Would you like to honor a loved one in your family that was a Veteran? With Military Honors you can." Depending on the branch of service, we can offer that of: color guard, Taps, a gun salute or even pall bearers. We have contacts with all branches of the service to honor your loved one in the most appropriate way. In addition, we can apply for an American Flag and a Bronze Marker through the Veterans Administration as well as a Presidential Certificate honoring the life of your Veteran on behalf of a grateful nation.

 

Our funeral directors are committed to helping you create a special tribute to your loved one that will honor a life well-lived. We encourage you to share your ideas, customs and wishes with us.
