Plan a Traditional Funeral

Planning a funeral is one of life’s more difficult experiences. Death can bring about feelings that are hard to express, and on top of heavy emotions, family members are faced with deciding how best to honor a loved one.

Traditional funerals, based on long-established tradition, are one way to pay tribute to a life. Usually consisting of a visitation, a funeral or memorial service, and casketed burial, traditional funerals are symbol of respect and honor for a family member or friend.
