Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
Unlike a traditional funeral, a memorial service is a gathering where a casket is not present (although the urn with the cremated remains may be on display). A memorial service can be held weeks or even months after the death.
A memorial service can be held in a church, the funeral home or a community hall, or somewhere of importance to the deceased and family. There is usually music, selected readings, and a eulogy. Memorial services can be further personalized as a memorial service.
Saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy, and this is something that we understand all too well. Our goal at Westchester Funeral Home is to make sure that you have the best possible experience, and that your family is able to properly say goodbye to the deceased.
