The custom of caring for the deceased and honoring a life passed dates back to the beginning of civilization. Funeral service rituals offered a way for the living to grieve the loss of a loved one and find some type of closure. Even today, funeral services are a very important part of the healing process.
With so many options available today, deciding how to remember and honor a loved one is really a personal choice. Funeral or Memorial Services can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish and can be personalized to represent the life and passing of your family member.
Here at Carolina Funeral Home, we offer a wide variety of services including: Traditional Funeral, Cremation and Direct Burial. Any of these choices can be tailored to fit your individual needs and desires. We will explain the options available to you and allow you to make your own decisions.
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.
Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony.
