    Reasons for Funeral and Memorial Services

    For some family and friends, the idea of holding a service for a deceased loved one can be difficult. However, regardless of the sadness and grief that lingers in their minds, there are plenty of important reasons to hold some sort of service. Here are a few reasons you should consider having one:

    • Religious and spiritual rites of passage may have been important to the deceased, allowing you to honor those beliefs and take part in the final step of their spiritual journey.
    • This provides the opportunity to see family and friends and to share stories that celebrate the life of the deceased and aid in the grieving process.
    • Services and ceremonies help provide a form of closure for friends and family.
    • Friends and family can honor the memory of the deceased, always holding them in their hearts and minds.
    • Loved ones get one last chance to see the face and say goodbye to the deceased's earthly body.
  • Cremation Services

    Sometimes, traditional funeral services aren't always the best option for honoring the deceased. For these situations, there are cremation services that help families with flexibility when it comes to scheduling and storing the remains of their loved ones.

    Reasons for Cremation

    Many people just assume they'll be buried at the end of their life. However, cremation has become an increasingly common choice for end of life care. Here's why people are choosing cremation:

    • Direct cremations cost less than a traditional funeral.
    • Cremations provide more flexibility when planning memorial services.
    • Cremations allow for multiple loved ones to carry part of the deceased with them.
    • Cremations allow mobility, meaning you may not have to leave the final rest place of a loved one behind.
    • Cremations allow ashes to be scattered at places of special importance to the deceased, assisting them on their spiritual journey.

    Funeral Pre-Planning

    Relieve the burden of funeral planning for your loved ones. With funeral pre-planning services, you can plan and pay for the funeral or cremation in advance, which helps surviving friends and family members properly honor their loved one.

    Personalized Memorial Services

    As the years go on, traditional funeral services and burial rites are not always fitting the needs, traditions, and customs of local families. At Peasley Funeral Homes, our staff can help you organize a personalized memorial service that will feature the important things as decided on by you, your family and the deceased.
