Horse & Carriage Services
At Grace Funeral Service we believe that the “paying of final respect” should be as unique and memorable as the lives we seek to honor. The horse-drawn hearse, creates a stately atmosphere and a pace that encourages meaningful reflection prior to the farewell service.
Military Honors Details
In addition to helping families arrange a military funeral, we are also helping more and more families personalize the ceremonies, including memorial displays. Families tell us these “special” touches help make the final good-bye that much more meaningful.
Grace Funeral Home specializes in commemorating the individuals who faithfully served our country. From the ceremonies you plan to the products you select, we can help you remember your military hero through a meaningful funeral.
A Unique Casket, Vault or Urn
Caskets in varying price ranges are now available, with designs that provide deep associations with the life you a commemorating. Interior panels may contain photographs, paintings, or needlework that represent the things important to the person who has died. The hardware and other accents, too, can represent various themes such as the life of an outdoors person, a military veteran, or a wife and mother. Personalized caskets and vaults are available in many price ranges, fabrications, and colors.
Engravings or artwork on an urn might depict outdoor scenes, religious imagery, and other images of the person’s occupation, hobbies, or interests.
Families who are grieving over the loss of their loved ones entertain, in their own hearts, a multitude of feelings good and sad, calling to mind not only the immediate pain of loss but also a nostalgic remembrance of good times shared. In our daily lives many of us are brought to remembrance by music: a favorite song, perhaps; a music style that reminds us of home and family; religious songs that help lift our hearts and minds to spiritual acceptance in a faith-filled celebration.
Some of the ways that music can help create a funeral ceremony that will be meaningful to you, your family and your friends include using musicians such as a bagpiper, harpist, organist or soloist.
Helping family and friends understand and deal with loss is not easy. A balloon release is a tangible way to help children and adults remember their loved ones. It gives the people present one last chance to say good-bye. At the end of the ceremony, the balloons are released into the air bringing closure to a beautiful tribute service.
Firework Displays provides memories filled with beautiful images you will cherish for a lifetime. Each of the services is built around a choreographed fireworks display. Fired into the sky as a part of the service, the cremains are scattered within the brilliant colors and patterns of the fireworks. This is a true celebration of a loved one’s life.
At the end of the graveside service, family members release the doves from decorated baskets. The flock ascends into the sky and circles the area awaiting the spirit of the loved one to join them. Moments later, a single white dove, representing your loved ones spirit, is then released by a family member. The spirit dove joins the flock of “Angels” and all together they make the spiritual flight home.
Monarch butterflies can be released as a memory and celebration of your loved ones life. Many people believe that butterflies symbolize spirit, representing freedom and beauty as they take flight. When we experience the vital connection between butterflies and nature, we tend to instinctively feel that peace and harmony are truly around us.
