I am sure my grandmother is very pleased with the dignity and care given for her final goodbye. The celebration was uplifting and flawless and my family and I will be forever grateful.
A traditional funeral service can be in a church or at our chapel. It can be religious or personal. We strive to make this event both meaningful and tasteful. The importance of making this ceremony everything you want it to be is most important with us.
There are many options for burial in the United States. The most popular is still the classic cemetery burial. At McFarland-Troutman-Proffitt Funeral Home, we believe that with the expense of the cemetery option, planning ahead can make a difficult process much easier for all involved at the time of a loved one’s passing.
Often referred as a wake, visitation is held two days before a funeral and right before the service. An opportunity to say a last goodbye to a loved one, a visitation also allows family and friends to gather for support. The casket can be open or closed, present or not. Visitation at our funeral home provides a sense of closure for everyone.
Terms like gravestones, tombstones, memorials or marker describe a very personal tribute to a loved one. We make sure you or your loved one is memorialized properly. Traditionally crafted from granite, stones can be designed and engraved for a permanent tribute.
