Joseph E. Hall Funeral Home
Many times families in the midst of their grief, discount the value of the ceremony after the death of a loved one. What they don't realize is that a funeral or memorial service is an important part of the healing process for all that knew and loved the deceased. Here at Hall's Funeral Home, we try to maintain that connection and help you to have a memory that will bring you joy and not regrets. We can make these plans at our office or we can visit you at your home to make the arrangements.
A traditional funeral service is when your loved one is present. Generally visitation is held the day or night before the funeral. The funeral service itself is held either in our funeral home, a church or other location, followed by a procession to the cemetery for a committal service, or if cremated, the deceased is returned to the funeral home.
With the graveside burial, a visitation is usually held at our facility the day or night before the service. The funeral service is held at the graveside with seating arranged for the immediate family. The deceased has the committal service at this time.
Cremation & Memorial
A Cremation & Memorial service can be held either in our facility, a church or other location. The remains of your loved one can be kept by the family or arrangements can be made other committal arrangements.
Immediate cremation usually involves the loved one being cremated and no services held.
A memorial service is when your loved one is not present. Generally a picture of the deceased is present during the service. The memorial service itself is held either in our funeral home, a church or other location.
A private service is by invitation only and primarily consist of a select group of family and close friends.
