Funeral planning can be a difficult process while grieving the loss of a loved one. But having a funeral provides those who are grieving a place to receive support, come to terms with their loss, say goodbye, and honor their loved one’s life. Being surrounded by family and friends lets everyone share stories and memories and creates a lasting support system as everyone begins their grief journey.
A burial service or committal service is typically a short ceremony held at the graveside following a traditional funeral service. These services are often public events attended by family and friends of the deceased but can also be a time for just family to gather privately after a public funeral service is concluded. Usually the burial service includes readings, songs, and prayers, but may also include military honors, a dove release, a bagpiper - or even a balloon release!
Families may also choose to have a private graveside service, with no prior funeral services held at the funeral home or a church. In this case, the family may choose to have a public memorial service later where family and friends can gather to remember and pay tribute to the deceased.
Burial services can be as simple or unique as you want. Our funeral directors and staff are here to help you design the service that meets your emotional needs.
