A Traditional funeral service is a two day service that includes one day of viewing with Rosary if desired and a second day for the formal service at the funeral home chapel, or location of your choice, or Mass at church. The service also includes embalming and preparation of the body and use of our hearse to transport the casket to the place of service and cemetery. It is customary to have a guest book and memory folders at the service. Also, floral tributes are often displayed and families are encouraged to bring photographs and other memorabilia to personalize the service.
The service could also be done in one day with a viewing prior to the service or as a closed casket service.
There is also the option of a graveside service held at the burial site. It may be limited to the immediate family and a few close friends or open to all. This also allows for a memorial service at a later time at the funeral home chapel, church or venue of choice.
