We will help you to choose the service which best reflects your family’s desires for a service to remember and a memory to cherish.
Expressions Video Memorial
Nothing creates a true lasting memory like a Memorial Video that family and friends watch time and time again. Reinforce the celebration of life and those emotions they felt during the visitation and service. The memorial video will be played over and over and shared with friends and family each holiday, dinner party or family reunion creating a lasting and positive image of your loved one for years to come.
The Preplanning process for your service can be informal and simple by filling out our pre-planning form. Our experienced and friendly staff offer a wide range of support to help make the process easy and worry free. If you prefer more formal arrangements we can arrange a meeting with our caring and courteous staff. Whether you decide to use the pre-planning form or a formal meeting with our staff, rest assured your final wishes will be shared with the family member of your choosing assuring a smooth and worry free funeral service.
Funeral and memorial services can be pre-funded through your life insurance, bank trust and many other methods. Our funeral director is knowledgeable with all forms of pre-funding and will be able to set up a preneed contract. The preneed contract gives you comfort in knowing your final arrangements are pre-funded and your services are in a manner you’ve chosen.

Placing the deceased in a permanent memorial is just as important to some families as the memorial service itself. For many, a grave or mausoleum niche is a place to visit and remember the life of their loved one. Others find a place in their home to keep the cremated remains. Choosing a place for final disposition provides your family the opportunity to visit and reflect in a permanent, identifiable location.
