Goodman Funeral Home offers traditional funerals, direct cremation, chapel services, memorial services, pre-arrangements and direct burials. The expressed wishes of the deceased as well as their family determine what is the best way to proceed with the funeral. Most often the body is the focal point of the funeral service, sometimes with an open casket, sometimes with a closed casket. The presence of the loved one, although deceased, seems to often bring comfort when it's time to say goodbye.
All ethnic backgrounds and religious denominations are serviced. Special care is taken to respect the customs, wishes and needs of the families.
Goodman Funeral Home is dedicated and committed to family service and the staff is available 24 hours a day.
Traditionally, depending on the cultural and religious protocol, the body of the deceased is at the service. Sometimes there is an open casket where embalming is done. Other times, a closed casket is on display.
For some, cremation serves as the best option. The cremation can take place before or after a funeral or memorial service. And the final destiny of the resulting ashes can be burial, scattering at sea or on land or placement in an urn to serve as a continual reminder.
Goodman Funeral Home offers a variety of Cremation/Memorial Services to fit your needs. We offer memorial registry books, customized memorial folders, flag cases, variety of urn options and urn vaults to personalize the service or ceremony of your loved one.
Chapel services are a standard part of most funeral rituals. A traditional chapel hall has room to display the casket in the front of the room and seating for all the family and friends. Often the service is conducted by a member of the clergy or a funeral director.
A graveside service that is held at the burial site is one of several service options.
