We are here when you need us. When someone close to you passes away, there are several decisions to be made. Funeral and cremation arrangements can be relatively simple or very elaborate.
At the time of death, decisions will have to be made about where to take the family member. Almost always that is to a local funeral home. Arrangements can also be made to send the deceased to another state. We are your information source for all of your questions. We will be with you and guide you through every step along the way.
Usually, the first time we speak with you will be by phone to obtain the legally necessary information. We will then set up an appointment with you to gather other needed information. At that time you and your family will be able to express your wishes and the type of services you prefer.
At Daniel Funeral Home we offer traditional services for all faiths. Our services can either be performed in our spacious chapel, or at a location of your choice. Our caring staff honors the want and needs of your family. Funeral services include counseling, preparing vital record statistics, securing permits, filing and obtaining death certificates, and assistance with life insurance claims, veterans administration and social security.
Our staff will be able to assist you in choosing the many optional services that may be required to carry out your family’s wishes. These may include embalming, funeral ceremonies, visitations, viewings, or graveside services. We can also provide access to hearses, flower vans, a funeral limousine, and other transportation of the remains.
We never forget that completing all the arrangements of a funeral service is a task most families face only a few times. Our intention is to help make every service personal and simple. There are many different ways to personalize the service. Here are some ways we can help:
Some people prefer to use their own music and others choose pianists, organist, or other personally memorable instruments. We can assist you in finding a local musician to suit your preferences.
Nothing reflects the life of a loved one more than a memory table. Covered with family photographs, plaques, trophies, quilts, flowers, artwork and other momentos, a memory table or memory board can be set up at the visitation and/or service.
We hope you will feel comfortable asking us for other ways to make the service extra special. There is no right or wrong way to use mementoes in a funeral service. Each is individual and personal.
