We believe a memorial service should be as unique as the person it honors. In fact, we create personalized services that beautifully capture the essence of you or your loved one. We can help you find inspiration almost anywhere—in a song, hobby, trademark style, defining philosophy or lifelong passion—and turn that inspiration into a memorial service filled with thoughtful and meaningful details. You'll find there's no limit to the special tribute we can create, so that your life—or the life of someone you love—is well celebrated.

Personalized funeral services

The team at H.M. Patterson & Son is honored to help you plan a celebration that reflects her personality and passions of yourself or a loved ones. We can help you find inspiration almost anywhere—in a favorite song, hobby or even an iconic style—and turn that inspiration into a memorial filled with thoughtful and meaningful details.

Whether you are seeking a basic cremation with a champagne toast, a traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial, or a creative event complete with live music, favorite foods and drinks, and funeral favors, we take care of every detail. Imagine it: From scrapbooking to sailboats, guitars to golf balls, Georgia peaches to Georgia bulldogs, we take the things that mattered to someone and string them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial. We are here to help you and your family celebrate life like no other.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and the different memorial and burial choices. From a direct cremation without a service or a witness to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common decision.

Easy cemetery access

Additionally, to better serve families, we have a close affiliation with Arlington Memorial Park, which is conveniently located 2 miles away. We understand losing a loved one is an emotional and difficult experience, and we are committed to assisting families with compassionate, professional and personal service.
