Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.
A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony.

Pet lovers are sure of one thing, their pets are their babies and when something tragic happens to them sometimes it can feel as though it hurts deeper than losing a human loved one. The bond between a human and their fur baby is real and we here at Life and Legacy know this to be true. We too have fur babies here at the funeral home that greet those who come through the front door. We have also had to tearfully say "goodbye" to some of them. This is why when you are faced with losing your baby, Life and Legacy is here to offer personalized cremation services that celebrate the life of that pet. Each pet is cremated individually so that you are not having remains returned to you that were part of a communal cremation. Your pet is returned to you and is never out of our direct care.
Monuments and Memorials
After the funeral services are done and everyone has gone back home, that is the time that missing a loved one finally settles in. A grave or cremation niche has a certain comfort that allows you to be near your loved one. Nothing endears the life of your loved more than a proper monument or memorial celebrating the life of the one who left us way to early. Life and Legacy can help you design a marker that makes a statement about your loved one and the life they lived. We do it at the lowest cost to the families while making sure that every detail is covered. We deal in granite as well as bronze.
