Beautiful tributes inspired by life
Inspire us with stories of a favorite pastime, a lifelong hobby or defining characteristic, and our professional funeral directors will integrate meaningful elements into a personalized tribute. Host an exclusive gallery opening featuring notable works from the amateur photographer who never put her camera down, with keepsake prints for guests in attendance. Premiere a video tribute to the family film buff, in a red carpet atmosphere with reserved seating and their favorite movie candy. Flexible reception space, vast creative resources and your imagination mean the possibilities are virtually endless.
Of course, traditional religious funerals remain a timeless option. As contemporary celebrations of life gain acceptance, you may choose to integrate elements of both to create your perfect tribute. Those who choose cremation can select a viewing before optional burial of cremated remains. Our interfaith chapel welcomes guests of all cultural backgrounds with warmth and understanding.
As you decide among the range of choices available, count on our team to guide you through every step. Leave the cooking to us, with your favorite dishes and family recipes prepared and served with care by our professional catering staff. Let us assist in selecting decor for the stateroom, and music to evoke the right emotions.
