Create an ideal tribute
Our approach begins with your stories from life. Tell us about a lifelong hobby or passion for a pursuit, and we will create a tailored funeral or memorial service inspired by meaningful moments.
Imagine a cedar-scented service for the woodworker in your family, with engraved wooden keytags to pass down for generations. Envision a rural-themed ceremony for the one who felt most at home on the farm, with guests in comfortable dress and a tractor escort for the funeral coach. With our flexible reception space and creative resources, your imagination is virtually the limit.

For veterans and members of the armed services, a funeral service with military honors marks a time-honored tradition for those who served our country.
