Funeral HOME options FOR BUFFALO, LACKAWANNA, HAMBURG & WEST SEnECA, NY
Any of our service options can be customized to meet your needs.
Here are a few common choices that families make:
With this option, there is a visitation (calling hours) held at our funeral home in advance of the burial.
A visitation is when the body is laid out in the casket (which may be open or closed) at the funeral home so that family and friends may pay their respects and say goodbye to the deceased.
Just as important, the visitation can be a time for family and friends to meet and console each other prior to arriving at the cemetery. You can schedule a visitation for any calling hours that you would like, for example, 2-4 PM, 7-9 PM or 4-8 PM, etc. The visitation can be restricted to just close friends and family, or be open to the public. You can even have a combination of private and public calling hours.
