We believe in honoring your loved one through a celebration that is personal and provides a healing experience to family and friends. Celebrations of life can be held for burial or cremation to help celebrate a life well lived.
From traditional ceremonies to unique celebrations, we pride ourselves on our service helping you plan the perfect event.
A gift for generations, plant a tree to honor your loved one.
Give a veteran the respect deserved with veteran funeral benefits.
The purpose of a funeral is to provide a way of commemorating a life and bringing together friends and family. We aim for our celebrations to be a time to share memories and remember your loved one through music, stories, and capturing the nature of their spirit.
The most important thing to keep in mind when creating a celebration is that it should be reflective of your loved one. While religious elements may play a part, it should also include stories about the person’s life that help everyone recapture and revisit their own memories. Sometimes this is best accomplished by having friends or family members share their reflections as part of the service. Some people personalize the service with special music (which may be religious or non-religious). Others bring in pictures to have at the service. Sometimes favorite things that belonged to the deceased are integrated into the ceremony such as wood carvings, golf clubs or even a motorcycle.
The goal is to give a true sense of who this person was. There is nothing wrong with telling funny stories about the person who died: a funeral recognizes the sad event of a death, but can include humor. Unique celebrations include a butterfly release, decorating to display their passion project, or bringing in your loved one’s private art collection to be on display.
Everything from our first meeting, to the cemetery and certificates, thank you cards, flower arrangements, church and obituary were handled in a professional manner. No pressure, no hype with compassion and complete attention to detail.
The Urban Family provides compassionate and professional guidance throughout the funeral planning, the services and for months to follow. Their attention to detail offers family and friends comfort in knowing nothing will be overlooked. Our family greatly appreciates their kindness during our recent loss.
“Our family has been with Urban funeral Home for close to 30 years. My Grandmother, Aunt, In laws and most recently Mom have had their funeral handled by Urban. My mother specifically requested Skip & Dolores handle her funeral. We were in good hands from beginning to end. Peter and Trudy are wonderful. My thanks to all the Urbans.”
