What is the difference between a “funeral” and a “memorial service”?


The body is present at a funeral, for viewing or in a closed casket. In a memorial service, the body is not present.

Whom do I call in the event of a death?


When a death occurs at home, in a hospital, or in a nursing home, call the funeral home that will be in charge.
We will assist you in making all the necessary arrangements.

What is a death certificate?


It is the legal record of a death, showing the date, time, place, and cause of death. A certified copy is required
for life insurance and other death benefits, and for probate (transferring property to the survivors). We will
obtain death certificates for you.

How much does a casket cost?


The price of a casket varies with its construction and its interior fabrics. It may be built of cloth-covered
fiberboard, metal (stainless steel, copper, or bronze), or hand-crafted hardwoods. The interior fabrics used
most often are satin, crepe, and velvet.

If we choose cremation, can we still have a visitation and funeral?


Yes. The choice is yours. We will arrange a funeral to meet your needs and wishes.

If we choose cremation, do we still need to buy a casket? 


A simple fiberboard container is the minimum required for cremation. For the funeral service, you can
purchase a casket or we offer an oak rental casket with a cremation liner.

Can I pay for my funeral ahead of time?


Yes, and many people do. You can pre-pay through an irrevocable funeral trust. We can help you set up
the trust. We do not charge for this service.
