A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique.

Just like a funeral service, memorial services and gatherings are a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service or gathering at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.
If cremation has already taken place with another provider, you are still able to use our facilities to celebrate the life of your loved one. Our licenced Funeral Directors will walk you through the process and adjust costs according to your needs.

A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony.
Legacy Lite Cremation Package
Arrangements Made from the Convenience of Your Own Home
Although it is our desire to create trust and a relationship through a face-to-face meeting with the families we serve, we understand that many circumstances including cost may play a role in the decisions that are made with respect to an immediate cremation. This is why we have created the Legacy Lite Cremation Package.
This is an online cremation arrangement where the person legally responsible for making cremation arrangements completes required forms electronically and submits them to our funeral home through email. All communication with our funeral directors is made via email and over the phone (30-minute telephone consultation).
We can create this lower cost simplified cremation option for families by reducing the need of having one of our licensed funeral directors meet with you in person and minimizing our typical services normally included with a simple cremation.
Some conditions apply. Call for details.
