  • Are there any important religious or cultural traditions that should be observed in the service?

  • Are there any readings or words that should be prepared and spoken? If so, who do you have in mind to share these?

  • What elements of personalization would be appropriate and meaningful to those who attend the funeral?

Behind the scenes, our director and staff will take careful note of your answers to such questions and start the work of coordinating all support services for the funeral. Whether it be the care of your loved one’s mortal body or logistical arrangements in support of the service, we will handle these details, so that you and your family don’t have too.
