A funeral represents a purposeful opportunity to reflect on the meaning of a life that has been lived and to determine the impact of that meaning for the family and friends. There is no single proper funeral service. It is a time for human sharing in its deepest sense. You and the ones you love are at the very center of the process, and the choices you make will determine its significance for you. As you participate in the planning of the funeral service, you help create a meaningful experience for everyone.
It is the goal of Iles Funeral Homes to help people complete the relationship with the one who has died and to provide a climate that encourages each person to give and receive emotional support. During the funeral service, family and friends have the opportunity to relate to each other at the deepest levels and find mutual strength.
Traditionally, the funeral will be a complete funeral service. This includes a family or public viewing of the deceased followed by a service, typically in the church or at the funeral home. This would be followed by the earth or above ground burial of the casketed remains. Caskets selected may cost from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars depending on the design, craftsmanship and material of the casket. Many cemeteries require an outer burial container be used to encase the casket when buried in the earth.
The graveside service can be another selection. This often follows a time of visitation at the funeral home. The casketed remains would then be transferred to the cemetery where a graveside ceremony could take place followed by the burial.
At Iles Funeral Homes, we encourage families to Celebrate Life The Way It Was Lived. Our staff, facilities and service enhancement options are all available to help you acknowledge that life has been lived and to offer to the community a way in which to celebrate that life. By offering services and features that are personal and special, a unique life may be remembered and honored in an individualized way that is comforting to the family and friends.
