A Memorial Service or Memorial Funeral is a time to come together to honor the life and memory of a love one. A Memorial Service is a service without the body present, while a Funeral Service is with the body present.
They can be religious or non-religious; Sometimes we call them Memorial Gatherings (since "Service" can have a religious connotation associated with it), where people to come together to talk about the deceased or share stories.This can be informal, or follow a formal program. Whatever your desire, we can customize it to be relevant to the deceased.
We have people come in and select a direct cremation or direct burial because the deceased, during their life, said they wanted no funeral. However, a Memorial Gathering is not a funeral service. Not only can we customize it to your satisfaction, but a Memorial Gathering provides a step forward in helping with the mourning process. By coming together, family and friends have the opportunity to recall good times and memories as well as provide support and comfort to one another.
