We understand that every family has different needs. Anything from the type of gathering, to the selection of readings and music, to the final resting place. Every aspect of a service reflects the uniqueness of the individual who is being honored. After death has occurred there are several options one may choose when making arrangements.
Traditional Funeral Ceremony
This is the service that usually involves the possible purchase of a casket, a viewing or visitation, and a ceremony held to celebrate the life of the deceased. Services are held at chapel facilities, church or other location, and interment usually follows in a cemetery. When you contact us we will be available to discuss the locations of these events, we have many professional relationships with several cemeteries in Chicago. If you are pre-planning and have a burial site selected, we will help with any other planning you require.
