A Final FarewellThe essence of the funeral service is a final farewell to a loved one. In most cultures, this is a beautiful, formal service that reflects the history, tradition and religious beliefs of the family and the community. By providing a way to say goodbye to a loved one, these formal services help families accept their loss and open themselves to the process of healing. Their link to a family's rich history and tradition offers a sense of continuity, and is a source of comfort to the people who participate.
The most meaningful and comforting farewell service is one with a strong link to the beliefs of the person being honored. It helps everyone who attends feel a special connection to their loved one's life. The shared experience of a beautiful service connects family members with each other - the people who can be their best source of comfort and support.
Our professional staff has experience in working with families from all traditions and cultures. We can help create a meaningful Farewell Service that reflects the dignity, history and rich spirituality of your family.
