A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique. Many cultures and religions have special funeral traditions and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. This is a moment for you and your family and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.
Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.
A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
We know the challenges you face while planning a funeral or memorial, especially after the loss of a loved one. Our funeral directors and family service counselors are dedicated, compassionate professionals who specialize in arranging funeral or cremation services in advance or at time of need.
Those who choose our plan-ahead options make their wishes known about the type of service they prefer, merchandise, such as caskets and urns, and manages costs, which relieves family members of the financial burden of a funeral or cremation.
At Thompson-Strickland-Waters Funeral Home, we believe that services should reflect the lives of those being honored and create meaningful tributes to those who have meant so much to family and friends. Whether it's a favorite song or lifelong passion for a topic, our team transforms those details into a personal funeral or memorial service that showcases individuality.
In addition, we help families write thoughtful obituaries, schedule flexible visitation hours and we create a favorable memory of their loved one. You'll find there's no limit to how we serve you.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different choices. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or to a funeral service before or after the cremation, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.
