Eternal Rest Funeral Home
At Eternal Rest Funeral Home we make sure to follow every request as closely as possibly for what the loved on wants. Our facilities allow for any service wanted from burial to cremation.
We have a funeral planner to help the family in making any decisions. The family schedule is important and we make every effort to meet any accommodation the family wants or needs. Services can be held at the convenience of the family whether it be morning, afternoon, or night.
Economic concerns are the least concern the family should be facing during this time. At Eternal Rest Funeral Home we set up payment plans if the family cannot handle the cost of the funeral services.
Jewish Customs- The three customs of preparing the body washing, ritual purification, and dressing are services that are provided in Eternal Rest Funeral Home. We know that cremation and embalming is not acceptable and will not be brought up. (Rich, 2011) Eternal Rest Funeral Home will work alongside with the community organization to follow all Jewish customs and rituals.
Christianity- There are rooms available for a wake and communion supplies are available upon request. We have connections to pastors and priests if the family is in need of one for the service. Graveside services are also available.
Buddhism- Monks are welcomed to be part of the funeral service and to handle things as requested by the family. It is understood that if the family would like they can clean and dress the body in accordance to the Buddhist beliefs of every day clothes (Everplans, 2015).
Hinduism- We have connections in India to obtain water from the Ganges River for the service. We understand the necessity of holding the service at the next dawn or dusk after the person has passed and will make arrangements accordingly. Space is provided for the Mantras and hymns for the family and friends.
Islam- The Islamic local community is welcomed to help assist in making arrangements along with the funeral planner. It is understood that embalming and cremation is forbidden (Everplans, 2015).
