Honour What Made Them Unique
Coping with the loss of a loved one is never easy and often times the thought of planning a funeral seems too difficult for those who are left behind. Celebrating the life of your loved one is an essential part of the grief recovery process. A funeral service provides those who are grieving with a supportive environment in which they can begin to find closure, say goodbye and come to terms with their loss. Gathering with family and friends gives everyone the opportunity to connect, share memories, offer words of sympathy and create a lasting network of comfort and support as they begin the journey toward healing. No matter the setting, style or direction you choose, our professional and caring team is honored to assist you in creating a personalized service that reflects your loved one's unique life journey. From a simplified cremation to a full traditional visitation with funeral service and every kind of life celebration in between, we are here to serve you in our comforting and spacious gathering place.
Our recently renovated chapel can accommodate up to 200 people for a service and our brand new "Dalton Jacques Memorial Suite" is the perfect intimate and cozy setting to share a meal and fond memories with your family and friends after the service or even host your celebration of life with those closest to you. The suite can accommodate up to 80 people and can be personalized with your choice of music, a podium and microphone for sharing stories and fond memories and a large screen television to share your memorial video.
Traditionally, a burial service involves a visitation and is followed by a funeral service. While the casket is typically present at both these events, it is your decision whether to have the casket open. You then have a number of options for interment.
Cremation is an increasingly popular option for many people, serving as an alternative to burial. Reasons for preferring cremation vary. Some religions request it, while other people consider it more environmentally conscious. Some may simply like the idea of cremation more. During cremation, the remains are placed in a special furnace and reduced to resemble coarse sand.
Family and friends that live in far away locations will appreciate that we can use technology to bring together people from all over the world to honor and celebrate your loved one who has passed away. Webcasting your loved one's service gives those who are unable to attend live, the ability to participate in the service in real time and share in the celebration. A great way to include everyone near and far.
