A funeral is a time to honor the life of the deceased and celebrate the heritage of their family.
ObitsOnline strives to make each tribute to your loved one a respectful, fulfilling experience that meets the unique needs of each family.
From Wikipedia – A funeral is a ceremony connected with the burial (or cremation, etc.) of the body of a deceased person, or the burial (or equivalent) with the attendant observances.
Funerary customs comprise the complex of beliefs and practices used by a culture to remember and respect the dead, from interment itself, to various monuments, prayers, and rituals undertaken in their honor. Funeral rites are as old as human culture itself, pre-dating modern Homo sapiens and dated to at least 300,000 years ago.
Please download this ObitsOnline form, print it, fill it out, and bring it to your local funeral director. We understand this can be a difficult time.
