Explore the Many Ways to Personalize the Service
A chance to heal, a way to say goodbye
When we recall a loved one, we focus on the interests and passions that make them unique. A funeral service is your chance to revisit these special qualities and relive joyous moments, while saying goodbye. For many, a meaningful service is an important part of the healing process. It also helps console the immediate family, the people who often feel the loss most deeply.
Every service should be as unique as the life being celebrated.
Today, there are many ways to personalize this important event, with your faith, culture and family traditions only the start. Do you want friends to say goodbye at a visitation? Will a casket or urn be present? Is a graveside service more in keeping with your wishes? Would you prefer, as some people do, more than one service? You may also decide to have the service include live or recorded music, photos and videos, favourite readings, and even cherished memorabilia. We strive to be flexible in accommodating every reasonable request and can help guide you through your choices.
Choosing your funeral home
Your funeral home should provide for all your needs. Whether you are planning ahead, or in need of immediate attention at the most trying of times, you'll want the support of a licensed, professional, full-service facility. Selecting a funeral home that is affiliated with Arbor Memorial's many crematoriums and cemeteries can simplify all of your decisions.
