When planning a funeral, one of the many decisions you will make is where your loved one’s final resting place will be. Depending on whether you choose a cemetery, your home, your garden or some other location, you will need to choose an appropriate protective container. Your funeral director will match your specific needs to all available options, which may include caskets, vaults, or urns.
You may also want to purchase a permanent memorialization for your loved one. Memorializations include personalized markers, monuments and a variety of keepsakes — all crafted with care using the finest quality materials.
Caskets are made in a wide variety of styles and materials. They can be made from inexpensive materials, such as pine or a composite of hardboard, and cost very little. Or they can be very expensive when made from the finest materials such as bronze or mahogany. Stainless steel and steel caskets are also popular options.
Most cemeteries require that caskets be placed in an outer burial receptacle capable of withstanding the weight and pressures of the earth above and surrounding the receptacle. Our Merchandise Selection Room provides samples of vaults and other outer burial containers for each family to preview and make their selection of choice.
Memorial Registry Gifts, Videos, Personalized Printed Material
A variety of Memorial Registry Books, Service Folders and Acknowledgement Cards are available that can reflect the life and interests of the deceased.
Gather photos of your loved one and we will create a lasting tribute on DVD that can be viewed during visitation or a service. Additional copies of the video tribute can be purchased for family and friends.
Whether you wish to have photos included on memorial folders or a family prayer or quotation included on prayer cards the options and choices are yours to make. Many choices of register books, memorial folders, prayer cards and thank you notes are available to customize as you desire.
