Designing A Funeral
Your next consideration focuses on choosing between burial and cremation. Usually, people are clear on this point. In fact, your loved one may have told you, or someone else, exactly how they wish to be cared for. But it can be a hard decision for some families, especially when the wishes of the deceased were never clearly stated. If that's the case please know we're able to help you come to the perfect decision for your loved one, and for you.
Once you decide, the finer details come into focus. If you've chosen burial, then selection of the casket, vault, and desired cemetery property follows. Naturally, we're here to help you.
If cremation is your choice, we provide the security of having our own crematory on our grounds to ensure everything is handled properly. The next decision will be whether the cremated remains will be placed in a mausoleum niche, or buried on the cemetery grounds.
Located on the grounds of Roosevelt Memorial Park, our mortuary offers many benefits:
- Make both funeral and interment arrangements in one visit.
- Eliminate the need for a funeral procession on city streets and freeways, which can often be disconcerting to family and friends.
Now that we've given you the basics, its time to reflect more on exactly what is appropriate for and your family. If possible, gather everyone together to speak of their feelings and desires.

How to Honor a Life
There are two facets of the design process. First, we ask you to consider how you wish to honor and celebrate the life. When those important decisions are made, we'll turn to the issue of how you wish to care for the physical remains.
Burial or Cremation?
It's about bringing those you love together, at a time of loss. It's a natural thing to do, and over time, has become a socially-expected practice. More importantly, a funeral or memorial service, whether traditional, or contemporary, is the first step in healing.
You can have your service anywhere, and any way you want. Your choices include the place of celebration, day of the week, and time of day' the musical selection, what prayers will be said or songs you'd like sung. We can arrange to have doves, butterflies, or balloons released at the close of the service. Keepsake gifts of wildflowers seeds or tree seedling can be given. We're here to help you create the most memorable and meaningful service to honor your loved one.
