Saying goodbye to someone we love is a most painful experience. A traditional funeral service is a celebration of one's life. Family and friends give emotional and physical support to one another. Survivors are helped in coping with their grief and moving forward with their lives. McCommons Funeral Home, Callaway Funeral Home and Georgia's Lake Country Crematory offers traditional funeral services for all faiths, either in our chapel or at any other location. The caring staff at McCommons Funeral Home, Callaway Funeral Home and Georgia's Lake Country Crematory honors the individual wants and needs of each family. Funeral services include counseling, preparing vital record statistics, securing permits, filing and obtaining death certificates and other forms and claims.
Several options are available for those who prefer a traditional burial service. A few of these options include a complete funeral service at the funeral home or place of worship with burial to follow; graveside funeral service of remembrance; and finally, immediate burial with no services. While these only cover the general types of burial services, your choices are not required to fit exactly into any particular category.
Personalization is a valuable element of today’s funerals. A ceremony can be individualized with musical selections, readings and displays to reflect the person's life, occupation and interests. It may reflect one's religious beliefs as a re-affirmation of faith in a greater life beyond this world. It may center on an ethnic background or social affiliation, or even reflect the occupation or hobbies of the deceased. Inviting friends and family to stand and say a few informal comments about the deceased can be very helpful to survivors. Family members are encouraged to express any ideas that will create a more meaningful and personalized service.
