Service Questions

Why do funerals cost so much?

Funerals actually cost less than most major life celebrations – births, weddings, etc. An average wedding costs three times as much as funeral. Funeral homes operate 24/7 and are extremely labor intensive. Funeral expenses include not only a casket/urn but also all the arrangements made to make sure your family has a proper farewell to a loved one.

Why should I have a funeral?

Funerals are an important part of the grieving process for families. It gives family an opportunity to get together and celebrate life and share their thoughts and feelings about death.

Should I choose burial or cremation?

Burial in a casket is the most popular way of laying remains to rest. Cremation is becoming increasingly popular as it can be less expensive and also allows more time for a ceremony and memorial.
