Client Reviews

It is not an easy time for anyone to lose a close family member or friend. And to be expected to plan a funeral service on top of that can be brutal. Let us help you with that unneeded stress and leave the planning process to us. You may not be used to planning a funeral or cremation service in Lewisburg, Pa, with just a few day’s notice, but we are. We know how vital this gathering is to you and your family, and we will not cut any corners. You can always rely on knowing that your loved one is in good hands.

When it comes to end-of-life services, every person and family is unique. Think about the personality of the loved one. How would they like to be laid to rest? What kind of program would they want to be honored? If there was no pre-planning set into place, then there could be clues that you glean from their personal journals. You can also ask family and close friends if they ever had a conversation with the deceased regarding their death.  

When you weigh the options of whether to go with a traditional burial or cremation, talk to several people in the family. Speak to the children of the deceased, asking if they would prefer a physical cemetery to visit the gravesite. Or if they don’t want to be tied to a specific place, they can choose to carry the ashes of their parent with them in keepsake jewelry. Getting the input of several loved ones will help make the right decision for your family. 

Funeral and Cremation Options in Lewisburg, PA 

As every person is unique, we offer several services to pay tribute to the deceased. As you read through each option, think about which service would best fit the person you love.  

  • Traditional Funeral and Burial: This may be the funeral with which you are most familiar. Your loved ones gather together to remember the deceased. The casket is there with you all to gather around. You can have speakers and music and a formal program. And then the coffin is buried at a cemetery.  
  • Cremation with Memorial Service: Cremation is a respected option to choose. Our staff is trained to be completely precise and respectful throughout the whole process. And when you have the ashes, you can choose to keep them in an urn or scatter them in an intimate ceremony. A memorial service can be the same as a funeral but without the casket present.
  • Celebration of Life: If a formal, sit-down event is not your vibe, you can have a celebration of life. Play music, serve food and drinks, and choose an outdoor venue. You can display favorite sports teams or hobbies of the deceased. And you can walk around, chatting and sharing stories of your shared loved one who passed away.
  • Veteran Services: For those who served our country in a military capacity or the fallen heroes who died on the job as a firefighter or police officer, we offer special services to honor their service.
  • Virtual Services: Large gatherings during a pandemic can look different. And we are up to the task of including everyone that wants to be there for the deceased. We have the technology to virtually broadcast any funeral or memorial from our facility.

Be sure that you are thinking of your loved one when planning a funeral and cremation in Lewisburg, PA. Many people attend end-of-life services looking for healing. They want to feel the presence of the life they came to honor there in the program. Everyone in attendance greatly appreciates any glimpse of the deceased that can be sprinkled throughout the event.

How long after death does a funeral occur?
