Personalized Services

We encourage families to create very personalized services. It is important to acknowledge that life that has been lived and to offer to the community a way in which to celebrate that life. By offering services and memorialization features that are personal and special, a unique life can be remembered and honored in an individualized way that is comforting to the family and friends.

 

 

 How Your Funeral Director Can Serve You

When a death occurs, your primary responsibility is to yourself and the ones you love. There are a number of things that require attention simultaneously. Regardless of the day or hour, we are always prepared to respond to your needs quickly and competently. Our main function is to assist you with the necessary details of the funeral process. Among the services funeral directors provide are:

  • Arranging funeral plans

  • Securing necessary permits and death certificates

  • Care and custody of the body

  • Coordinating all details with the clergy

  • Arranging the music you have selected

  • Placing obituary and funeral notices in newspapers

  • Assisting in arranging for burial or cremation

  • Assisting in arrangements for cemetery space, grave opening and closing, flowers and monuments

  • Arranging transportation for you and the members of your family prior to, during, and after the funeral

  • Supervision of the funeral or memorial service

  • All necessary arrangements for transportation, funeral service, and burial if the deceased is to be sent to a distant location

PERSONALIZATION SERVICES

We know that every family we serve is unique, and we strive to make each service a personal tribute to the life that has been lived. We provide a wide variety of choices that will help fulfill a family's wishes, from a traditional funeral to a personalized service that celebrates a loved one's hobbies and interests.

The following are ideas that you may use to personalize a service:

  • Photographic collages

  • Displays of personal memorabilia, such as awards, trophies, or favorite pastime items, such as garden tools

  • Writing of personal notes by family and friends during the service

  • Live musicians

  • Special customs particular to different faiths, ethnic groups, and fraternal organizations

  • Displays of uniforms and equipment for government employees

  • Video tributes: We have the electronic capabilities to design a memorial slideshow or video that will be displayed on a large flat screen television during visitation hours. 

 

We at Anderson Funeral Home are committed to helping you create a special tribute to your loved one that will honor a life well-lived. We encourage you to share your ideas, customs and wishes with us.
