At Chapels of Eden, our funeral directors are committed to helping you create a special memorial experience for your loved one that will honor a life well-lived in an expression of love that leaves an eternal impression. We encourage you to share your ideas, customs and wishes with us.
The following is an overview of the different types of memorial experiences that we provide. They can be customized to meet your personal requirements. Our funeral directors will discuss the many other options and details that make each of our memorial experiences a personal expression of love and eternal impression of your loved one.
A traditional funeral service includes a viewing or visitation, a formal funeral service (at our funeral home, local church or location of your choice) and the necessary automotive equipment, such as a hearse to transport your loved one to the funeral site and cemetery. You are encouraged to bring in photographs and other memorabilia to further personalize the service.
Cremation is an option that offers you many of the same service options as traditional burial. Your choices range from direct cremation with no viewing, visitation or religious rites to a full service funeral, which may include a public or private wake, a religious service followed by cremation.
Consistent with a traditional funeral, cremation services may be personalized in many of the same ways. Personal items can be displayed during the visitation, as well as personalizing the urn itself. We would be happy to discuss any special request or ideas you have to make the any service more meaningful.
A memorial service is conducted without the body present and can vary in ceremony and procedures. It can be held at our funeral home or at a location of your choice.
In order to create a memorial service that is as unique as your loved one, we encourage you to help personalize the service with memorabilia, music, flowers. photographs and other personal items.
Funerals in Islam (called Janazah in Arabic) follow fairly specific rites, though they are subject to regional interpretation and variation in custom. In all cases, however, sharia (Islamic religious law) calls for burial of the body, preceded by a simple ritual involving bathing and shrouding the body, followed by salat (prayer). Cremation of the body is forbidden.[
A graveside service is held at the burial site. This service may be limited to the immediate family or open to all. After the service, there are options for a memorial service at our funeral home chapel, church or venue of choice.
For those wishing an earth friendly memorial experience, we can provide what is commonly known as a “green funeral”, using eco friendly burial containers in special “green” cemeteries.
Burial at Sea
Another option is the time honored practice of burial at sea. Available for cremains only.
