When a family faces the loss of a loved one, they often look to each other, and their family traditions for solace. Family traditions are often handed down for generations
and can bring a sense of stability and reassurance to families. We believe it is important to respect the family’s traditions and to help them carry them out as part of their grieving process. That’s why all of our funeral and cremation services in Grand Junction, CO are customized to support the families we serve.
We also honor and respect other families that do not find comfort in the old ways. These families often want to commemorate their fallen loved one in an alternative service style. They seek comfort in a more familiar way than tradition sometimes provides. This more modern way of grieving the loss of their deceased better reflects the families’ current values.
Whatever your family needs, it’s important to remember that there is no one right way to mourn the loss of a loved one. Whether your family selects a more traditional or alternative funeral service, we can help you thoughtfully plan and conduct a service that will best serve your family, while honoring the memory of your lost loved one.
How to properly plan a funeral for a deceased loved one?
It can be overwhelming to review the amount of coordination and planning that needs to occur in such a short window of time after a family death. That’s where an experienced funeral director can be an invaluable source of support. Our team of kind and caring funeral service professionals are ready to help your family in your time of need. We specialize in helping families to plan and hold funeral and cremation services in Grand Junction, CO.
Some of the common aspects that all funeral and memorial types share include event planning and logistics. For example, will the family be holding a public or private service? How many friends and family will attend? Where will the service be held? Who should speak and what should be said? Will the service be more traditional or modern? Are there any family cultural or religious elements that would add meaning to the service? Will the family lay their loved one to rest by casket burial or by cremation?

Direct Cremation: When financial resources are limited, this option is an excellent way for a family to obtain cremation service. The deceased is removed from their place of death and transported to our facility for cremation. The ashes are then returned to the family.

Why choose cremation over burial?
- The general cost is significantly lower than burial. Cremation does not require a grave to a cemetery, headstones, and embalming. Cremation urns are a far more cost-effective way than having the deceased placed in caskets.
Why embalming is very important?
- Embalming cleanses and disinfects the body. It also helps preserve the body for a period between death and final disposition either by cremation or burial.
