When hard times come, such as when the death of someone close occurs, people often look for comfort in their families and their traditions. These traditions may be found in their faith, or family culture and outlook. These traditions are often age-old customs that have been passed down from one generation to the next. They bring a sense of peace and stability to a family, anchoring them down when the storms of life occur. Our professionals here at Brown's Cremation & Funeral Service believe in the importance of family traditions and support families to maintain them whenever they may need funeral and cremation services in Vail, CO.
But many in our modern world are not comforted by the traditional ways of their families. They find greater meaning in the modern values of the family. For them, a funeral service in a religious venue is out of step with the changing times. Where can these families turn to when they need afterlife care for their loved ones? There is no one correct way that families should honor their deceased. Every family seeks comfort and meaning in the way that best meets their needs.
No matter what is right for you and your family, we are here to help. There are some common elements of every funeral service that should be reviewed. As an example, if a service is wanted at all, what kind of service should it be? Do you want a funeral or memorial? Should it be a peaceful remembrance? A chance to grieve and find strength in the arms of gathered friends and family? Should the funeral be a celebration of life and humor?
Other questions to ask may include, who should be invited to attend? How many will come? What words, music, stories or experiences should be shared at the occasion? Is there a worldview or faith traditions that should enlighten the services?
Planning and conducting a funeral and cremation in Vail, CO can be a difficult experience. But you don’t have to do it alone. Many compassionate and qualified professionals can help. Our experienced staff here at Brown's Cremation & Funeral Service are capable of providing a diversity of service offerings to our community.

Available Funeral and Cremation Services in Vail, CO
Every funeral home has different service offerings and experiences. Some will be more qualified to handle services for a particular faith tradition or method of afterlife care. This is important to note because it can impact the ability of the funeral home to meet your family’s particular needs. You should also note that in Colorado, funeral homes are not required to employ fully licensed funeral directors on their staff. It doesn’t mean the funeral home is unable to serve you, but rather they cannot provide you with a full-service offering.
