Funeral and Memorial Services
All too often, families discount the value of a ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly don’t want you to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process and helps you move beyond your grief to acceptance and healing.
Create Healing Experiences
In the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be ‘easier’ to just take care of things as simply – and as quickly –as possible. But easier – especially in this circumstance – simply isn’t better. It's important to set the stage for the future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.
Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation; whether you select a formal funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, the need for acknowledgment of the loss with family and friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique, meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one.
We offer families a beautiful setting at our facilities in which to come together to honor your loved one. However, you may choose to celebrate this life in a more unique setting. No matter where you decide to gather together, such a service will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.
If burial has been selected, usually any ceremonies we design revolve around the casket being present. You can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or memorial chapel. Or you could decide to have a more relaxed service, even in your family home.
Let’s just say this: there is no ‘hard and fast’ formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. We’re here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together before your loved one's interment in a cemetery such as our own Meadowbrook Memory Gardens in Villa Rica. Ask us about the various options you have at this cemetery.
Cremation only refers to the manner in which you or your loved one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. We want you to know that this decision doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. In addition, when you choose cremation, you may also want to bury the remains in a cemetery. At Meadowbrook Memory Gardens, we offer many ways to handle the remains of your loved one - in a cemetery plot, mausoleum, or vault. Ask us how we can help you.
You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over
You don't want to have any regrets. That's why it's so important to honor your loved one in a way that allows you to look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor his or her life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved this unique person is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a truly priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
