visitation with Funeral Service

A funeral service includes a public visitation of the deceased. Following the visitation will be a service, which is typically held in a church or at our funeral home. After the service an earth (in-the-ground) or above ground (mausoleum) burial of the casketed remains will take place.

Most cemeteries require a minimum grave liner to be used to encase the casket when selecting an earth burial. A minimum liner is constructed of concrete and is designed to hold the weight of the earth.

A sealed vault may also be used. A sealed vault is also constructed of concrete and is designed to not only protect the gravesite, but is manufactured with inner liners that restrict the entrance of graveside elements such as water and earth and increases the strength of the vault.

Graveside Funeral Service

A graveside funeral service is an alternative option for a funeral service which takes place after a visitation at our funeral home. After the visitation the casketed remains would then be transferred to the cemetery where a graveside ceremony could take place followed by the burial.
