Celebrating Life

Even the smallest touch can make a big difference in personalizing your funeral services. There's no right or wrong when it comes to celebrating your loved one and honoring their life, accomplishments, and individuality. 



Honor What Made Them Unique

Personalization isn't just about honoring your loved one's individuality. It also allows family and friends to feel connected to the services and the life being honored. A memorable and meaningful service can be an important part of the healing process for those who are coping with a loss. We work closely with you to get to know your loved one's life story and brainstorm ways to represent your bond and pay tribute to their unique journey.


Life Tribute Videos

We'll create a one-of-a-kind video tribute to your loved one by combining family photographs with cinematic introductions, music of your choice, and professional effects to share your loved one's special journey during the service and provide your family and friends with a meaningful keepsake after the ceremony is over.

 



Personalized Printing 

From the register book and memorial folders to prayer cards and thank-you notes, our high-quality stationery sets are available in over 500 themes to honor your loved one's hobbies, style, and unique life path. Let us help you explore the options and choose the perfect design to create treasured keepsakes for you and your guests.




Tribute Wall

Memorial sites not only allow you to share stories, photos, and videos of your loved one; they also allow you to connect with family and friends. When visiting the Celebration Wall, guests can leave text comments to share condolences, offer words of support and sympathy through video or audio messages, or leave a meaningful symbol when words just aren't enough. Guests can also view the obituary and service information, and order gifts and flowers directly through the site. This page serves as a permanent virtual tribute to your loved one, and a place you can return whenever you'd like to revisit memories and reconnect with messages of support and love. 

 




Balloon Release

Our Funeral Home will provide your family with a bouquet of environmentally safe balloons in the color of your choice. As the balloons slowly drift gently upward it leaves us with a memory that lasts a lifetime. Our staff will coordinate the balloon release to take place at anytime throughout the service. If you are interested in using this special memory maker, please let a staff member know. 

 



Bag Piper Musician 

Let the enchanting sound of the highland bagpipes be a presence at your funeral service. You may request that the bagpiper escort the casket from the funeral coach to the gravesite or that he play off in the distance before and after services. Arrangements may also be made for the bagpiper to play at chapel, church or memorial services. Please contact our staff about adding a bag pipe musician to your funeral service.




Dove Release 

As these beautiful doves fly into the sky with a burst of energy it reminds us of the soul's ascent into the heaven, and the abundant life that blesses each one of us. The Dove Release is most meaningful for graveside services. Our staff would be more than happy to make the Dove Release a part of your meaningful ceremony.






Memorabilia Display Tables

Any special photographs, personal memorabilia and other items will be beautifully displayed to reflect the true personality of your loved one. In the past, items such as golf clubs, baseball mitts, ballet shoes, artwork and motorcycle helmets have been displayed.
