Personalizing Services

Personalizing Services

Personalization isn't just about honoring your loved one's individuality. It also allows family and friends to feel connected to the services and the life being honored. We work closely with you and your family to get to know your loved one's life story so we can make their services as personal as possible.

Personalizing Caskets

Every funeral presents an opportunity to share a life story. From simple, personalized touches to elaborate themed services, you have unlimited possibilities for creating a meaningful tribute. The casket too can be personalized using commemorative embroidered panels, embroidered overthrows or LifeSymbols® designs. These popular casket enhancements are also used as individual keepsakes for family and friends, and include themes of patriotism, gardening, sports, family relationships, and spirituality.


Balloon Release

Our Funeral Home will provide your family with a bouquet of environmentally safe balloons in the color of your choice. As the balloons slowly drift gently upward it leaves us with a memory that lasts a lifetime. Our staff will coordinate the balloon release to take place at anytime throughout the service. If you are interested in using this special memory maker, please let a staff member know.


Dove Release

As these beautiful doves fly into the sky with a burst of energy it reminds us of the soul's ascent into the heaven, and the abundant life that blesses each one of us. The Dove Release is most meaningful for graveside services. Our staff would be more than happy to make the Dove Release a part of your meaningful ceremony.


Memorabilia Display Tables

Any special photographs, personal memorabilia and other items will be beautifully displayed to reflect the true personality of your loved one. In the past, items such as golf clubs, baseball mitts, ballet shoes, artwork and motorcycle helmets have been displayed.


Bag Piper Musician

Let the enchanting sound of the highland bagpipes be a presence at your funeral service. You may request that the bagpiper escort the casket from the funeral coach to the gravesite or that he play off in the distance before and after services. Arrangements may also be made for the bagpiper to play at chapel, church or memorial services. Please contact our staff about adding a bag pipe musician to your funeral service.


Memorial Markers

Our funeral directors will guide you through the process of selecting the perfect memorial marker/headstone for your loved one. There are many styles and options to consider and choose from when making this decision.
