Traditional funeral services are established by one's cultural or religious customs. These services include a time for families and friends to gather for a visitation or viewing. Services include a funeral at the funeral home or at a church, with the casketed remains present. A procession to a cemetery, or place of final disposition, follows the funeral service. Traditional funeral services are usually public, but can be private.
Graveside services are held at the site of burial. These services consist of scripture readings, a eulogy, poetry, and music, and may be accompanied by a visitation or viewing the evening before. A graveside service is a sensible alternative for small services.
Memorial services are conducted when the deceased is not present. These services may take place anywhere the family desires. This is an opportunity to remember your loved one through fellowship with friends and family.
