Floral tributes are often displayed and you are encouraged to bring in photographs and other memorabilia to personalize the service.
A graveside service is held at the burial site. This service may be limited to the immediate family or open to the public. After the service, there are many options for a memorial service. Many families use a church, the home of a close friend or family member or location of your choice.
A memorial service is conducted without the body present and can vary in ceremony and procedures. It can be held at the funeral home or at a location of your choice.
