Choosing Burial

 Call Us Anytime - 24/7

Burying a loved one is always an emotional experience. The nature of the service itself can be modified in accordance with the deceased’s wishes, or with the general preferences of the family. 

We do not take a one-size-fits-all approach to our burial services, but rather we create the kind of mood that families request—while ensuring that, regardless of the particulars, each burial service is intimate, affirming, and beautiful.

 Some Specific Burial Options Include:

  • Graveside funeral services, which can include involvement from a religious leader, masonic rites, military ritual, or readings from family members.
  • Committal services, in which loved ones gather to commit a loved one to the Earth—a symbolic gesture of healing.
  • Immediate burials, for families who have a sudden and unexpected need to bury a loved one.
