Burial or Graveside Services

The first rule in funerals is – there are no rules. If a song has meaning to the family or the person it should be sung.
 
If there are special people who can share meaningful thoughts and insights into the life of the person they should be heard.
 
If the family wants to speak they should do so even if their voices break and they must stop for a cry or so.
 
If there are special things that had meaning to the person; an old car, pictures of the life, mementos of a career…they should be at the service. These are the things that make a funeral meaningful. Feel free to express and honor without rules.
 
Many families opt for a complete traditional funeral service which includes a family or public viewing of the deceased followed by a service, typically in the church or at the funeral home. This would be followed by the earth or above ground burial of the casketed remains. Following the burial families may gather at a home or other location to share a meal and continue remembering the deceased.
 
The graveside service can be another selection. This many times would follow a time of visitation at the funeral home. The casketed remains would then be transferred to the cemetery where a graveside ceremony could take place followed by the burial.
