A funeral service, sometimes called a memorial service or a celebration of life, is a beautiful way to acknowledge, celebrate and honor the life of a loved one who has passed away. A funeral can bring comfort and peace to those who mourn and bring people together to share in the sorrow of loss and the joy of having known someone.
There are many different ways to celebrate a life, and each can be tailored specifically to the individual being honored, as well as their family. If a loved one has passed, you may have questions as to what kind of service to have. You may want to understand the difference between a traditional funeral and a memorial service. Or, you may want to pre-arrange your own service to ease the burden for your loved ones and to help make sure it reflects your unique life.

Maybe you aren’t sure what kind of funeral service you want to have, whether for you or a loved one.
