Your Wishes

A "Traditional Service" typically includes a viewing or calling hours the day before the service (but it can be done the same day), followed by a funeral service either in a church or at the funeral home.

There are two typical types of methods with cremation. You may have a viewing with a rental casket and a funeral service and the cremation takes place after all the services and the cremains are then given to the person you specify. Or, you may have the cremation take place before any services (if any) and have an urn present. 

Please include any specific church you would like to use.

If you have plots in a cemetery already, or have a prefered cemetery, please specify here.

Veterans are the reason we are here today. As thanks for your service, veterans are entitled to special burial benefits. Some of these are: a burial flag to be draped on the casket, a spot in the National Cemetery at no cost to your family or a special footstone if you choose another cemetery.

If you are a veteran, please have your discharge papers with you when you come in. You must have been honorably discharged to receive benefits.

Is there a charity you'd like to have mentioned in the obituary?

Do you have a verse you'd like to have on a prayer card? A type of casket you'd prefer? Any other requests? Please include them here.
