An individual’s funeral service represents a unique opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one; the memories you have, the values they projected, and the accomplishments they achieved. The funeral also serves an important part of the grieving process. There is no typical funeral service. Each family has its own special needs, customs, and traditions. McCommons Funeral Home is committed to helping you create a meaningful service that is the most appropriate for your family. Our funeral directors and staff are dedicated to assist you in choosing the music, clothing, flowers, and any other essentials that are right for your needs. No matter what your situation or desire, we are here to help you - before, during and after the funeral service. Each family we serve has their own unique needs. That’s why we offer a wide range of services, and why we listen to your desires when arranging a funeral. We strive for your utmost satisfaction and we feel that will be the case when you have the opportunity to choose exactly the type of services you prefer.
As no two people are the same in life, so every funeral should be designed to celebrate the uniqueness of one’s life. McCommons Funeral Homes and Crematory purpose is to encourage family facilitated memorialization, ensuring that a family’s emotional, spiritual, and financial needs are honored. In other words, our services are family driven, not funeral home mandates. We’re here to offer you options consistent with your needs and desires.
Funerals today look much different than those of even ten years ago. Families are encouraged to design funerals that reflect the individual personality of the deceased and family lifestyle. That may or may not mean a religious service. It can mean cremation or earth burial. It may mean multiple visitations open to the public or a simple private family gathering. It may mean a casket draped by a beautifully designed floral spray or a beautiful, handcrafted quilt. It may mean a gathering of friends at a club or restaurant with an urn situated on a nearby table. It could be a High Mass of Christian Burial with fifteen priests and multiple choirs. It may mean a few family members scattering the ashes of the deceased from a boat on a lake. Our family is committed to meeting your unique needs in a personal and professional manner.
A fire truck, antique hearse or even a horse-drawn carriage might replace the role of the traditional hearse. A room filled with meaningful paraphernalia and photographs might also accommodate the casket or urn of the deceased. A casket designed for kids to write a message on may be very important to a group of high school students in their struggle to accept the death of a friend. A wooden, marble, or bronze cremation urn might be the most appropriate container for another.
Spiritual songs of worship and praise may speak comfort beyond words to one family, while the simplicity of quiet meditative prayer would best minister to another. A graveside service, church or synagogue celebration, or the simplicity of an intimate circle of family is equally valid in meeting the unique needs of a grieving family. The McCommons family is committed to helping you design a service that will be meaningful to you and your family.
