Services We OfferHere are just some of our products and services that we offer.
Traditional Funerals and Graveside Services
A burial service, conducted at the site of the grave, tomb, mausoleum or cremation, at which the body of the decedent is buried or cremated at the conclusion.
Sometimes, the burial service will immediately follow the funeral, in which case a funeral procession travels from the site of the funeral service to the burial site. Other times, the burial service takes place at a later time, when the final resting place is ready.
If the decedent served in a branch of the Armed Forces, military rites are often accorded at the burial service. We offer our horse drawn caisson to use in the procession, from the site of the funeral sevice to the cemetery, to better honor those who served our country and fought for our freedom. Our caisson is available for use by any family who would like to honor their loved one, whether they were a veteran or not. Full Military Honors may also be provided to a Veteran. This includes a gun salute, playing of Taps, and the flag presentation. We are very fortunate to have a local Honor Guard made up of United States Military Veterans. They are volunteers that proudly honor those men and women that served our great country, as they did. The Honor Guard consists of members of the New Boston VFW and American Legion Post 488. Please consider making a donation to the Honor Guard! Our area is blessed to have this group of volunteers to honor our loved ones who fought for our freedom! Donations may be made to: American Legion Post 488, Attn: Richard Hall, P.O. Box 66, New Boston, Texas 75570.
Memorial and Cremation Services
The memorial service is a service given for the deceased without the body present. This may take place after an earth burial, donation of the body to an institution such as a school, cremation (sometimes the cremains are present), entombment, or burial at sea. Typically these services take place at the funeral home and may include prayers, poems, or songs to remember the deceased. Pictures of the deceased are usually placed at the altar where the body would normally be.
