A Consistent Place of Healing
This means creating a dedicated place for family and friends to connect and remember your loved one.
Burials are a traditional memorial choice that give families a meaningful physical symbol to mark a loved one’s resting place. At Goldfinch Funeral Services we offer a broad range of burial options, and we invite you to read about all that’s possible. We’re here to help you design a service and a physical memorial that will be a beautiful place to visit, forevermore.
A Consistent Place
In our modern society, people aren't given enough time to grieve their losses. The pressures of work, even the simple emotional need to ‘be busy,’ often bring the bereaved back into the ‘real’ world far too soon.
Also, many families are choosing to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in a favorite place; the ocean, or even in the skies above. While that may seem fitting at the time, it means that you do not have a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person you loved so dearly.
Having such permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the time following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions. It can help to make a birthday or anniversary less painful.
A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family's past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents may provide children with an anchor to their personal history. It is a connection to the past, to love shared. It truly honors the relationship you still have – and will always have – with that person.
Graveside Funeral Services
Express the life of your loved one and create a place for family and friends to gather.
We can help you design a meaningful and healing service to take place at the graveside. These services can take place outdoors or even inside a mausoleum. We’ll guide you through the process of personalizing both the service and the site in multiple ways. Working with your Funeral Director, you can select readings, speakers and create spiritual moments. You can include military honors, masonic rites and religious leadership. When it comes to memorialization, we offer many options. Your selection may include a flat memorial, upright monument, ledger, mausoleum plate, memorial benches or private estates. Please reach us any time to begin the conversation. We’re here to share our expertise, with professionalism and compassion.
A graveside service takes place after a funeral and can be a profound healing experience.
Funerals often take place at the mortuary chapel or at your place of religious worship. In that case, an internment and committal service can follow at the graveside. These are important gatherings to commemorate a life and mark the end of physical closeness. Family and friends gather to commit a loved one to the earth and say final farewells together. A committal service is symbolic and a helpful step in healing.
Together with your funeral professional, we can guide you through all of the arrangements.
Burials are often an unexpected need, and we can handle every detail should this option make sense for you and your family. Please call us any time to discuss your needs. Our mission is to ease your burden.
