Eternal Rest Funeral Home
Why Come to Us?
Here at Eternal Rest we provide a complete range of services to assist with all of your funeral needs. The death of a loved one is often one of the most challenging events that individuals face (Stroebe et al., 1992) Our goal is to make that experience as comforting and simple as possible.
Our services include: help with writing and publishing obituaries and tributes, funeral planning, burial options, and information about how to get help with grief and healing. We understand that the death of a loved one can also be a financial strain on families so we offer a variety of options that will help with these challenges. We also welcome all different cultures and religions and will accommodate your needs and requests. We understand that despite the fact that cultures continue to change the deep cultural code of burial rituals remains intact (Eisenbruch, 1984) Below is more detailed information about the services we offer.
Individual Pre-arranged Funerals
We are available seven days a week to assist families with planning for a sudden or unplanned death. Families and loved ones face a variety of challenges, including making group decisions, financial considerations, and other planning challenges. Our goal is to make this process as comfortable and easy as possible. We will meet with you and plan for every stage of the process in accordance with your wishes and we will take it from there. Families also have to consider the variety of options for funeral services including specific religious rituals, music requests, poem and other readings, additional morning after services, and meeting with the person selected to give the eulogy ( Leming & Dickinson, 2011).
