Funeral Planning

Planning to Honor, Remember and Celebrate

Funeral Planning - Miller Funeral HomeWhat is the most important step in the grieving and healing process?

Family and friends getting together to honor a loved one’s life…

Whether a family chooses traditional burial services or cremation services at Miller’s we are specialists in celebrating, honoring and preserving the life of a cherished family member and friend.

Through our life we build a “library” of moments, sayings, mannerisms and cherished memories. Every life lived deserves to be honored, to be celebrated and remembered by creating a time of specific recognition for this special person.

Whether you choose burial or cremation a time of specific recognition honors a loved one’s importance, brings family and friends together in support of those who are hurting. Gathering for the sole purpose of remembering and celebrating an individual signifies their importance, provides a foundation and pathway for our reshaped life without the physical presence of our loved one.

At Miller’s we help create unique and memorable life celebrations in honor of a loved one. The creation of a life celebration is an honor to the deceased and a gift to those whose lives where touched.

Burial services may be traditional and include a visitation, followed by a life celebration service in a place of worship, the Interfaith Chapel at the funeral home or within the cemetery. You have the option of having the remains interred (earth burial), or they may be entombed in a crypt inside a mausoleum (above ground burial).

Cremation is an option for honoring a loved one and celebrating life. Cremated remains can be scattered, buried, or kept with the family in a decorative urn. There are many new and different ways to dispose of ashes, cremated remains can be placed in an artificial coral reef in the ocean, they can be launched into space, or spun into glass art.

Many people plan for life events such as weddings and vacations well in advance. Pre-arranging your funeral lessens the burden on loved ones, ensures your funeral is carried out according to your wishes and assists in mitigating any family differences that might arise between a parent, children and/or siblings.
