Paying Final Respects with Dignity
At Lee's Funeral Homes & Crematory we arrange different types of funerals to meet individual needs. The main focus should always be on the wishes of the deceased. If the deceased did not express any clear wish while he or she was alive, we recommend that the relatives and other loved ones ask themselves the following questions when choosing the type of funeral:
What type of funeral would fit the life and personality of the deceased?
What effect will it have on how the loved ones will deal with their grief and their memories of the deceased?
We will meet with you personally to discuss these concerns.
Below you will find more detailed information about the individual types of funerals:
Grave burial is one of the oldest and most traditional types of funerals. The deceased is placed in a casket and taken to a cemetery for burial.
As a general rule, deceased individuals are often buried in or near their hometown; however, a cemetery in another location can also be chosen.
Relatives and loved ones can always visit the grave whenever they feel the need, place flowers or other items there in memory of the deceased, and be close to the departed.
Lee's Funeral Homes & Crematory is one of the largest on site cremation providers in the area.
Cremation can be performed with or without a funeral service. In this form of funeral, the deceased is cremated in a casket at a crematorium. The remaining ashes are stored in an urn. The choices of burial sites range from an urn burial site, family grave site, mausoleum or tree burial.
A tree burial is one type of green burial where the urn containing cremains is buried under a planted tree. In special types of funeral service following cremation, the cremains are buried under a tree offered by the cemetery.
We will make all of the necessary funeral arrangements to transfer the remains to a foreign country. We will contact the Embassy, obtain the requisite apostille and other documents; make airline reservations to ship the remains, and transport the remains to the airport.
