Memorial Service Planning
Unlike a traditional funeral, a memorial service is a gathering where a casket is not present (an urn with remains may be on display). These services can be held weeks or even months after the death.
Parsels Funeral Home understands that there is more creativity involved with these services and strives to accommodate you and your family’s needs.
As you begin to plan this ceremony, we believe that it is essential to ask yourself the following questions:
- What did your loved one like to do?
- What were they like as an individual?
- What was their profession, and how did that shape their life?
- Was your loved one spiritual?
- Were they proud of their cultural or ethnic heritage?
Using the above questions as a guide, we will help plan the perfect ceremony.
Call 609-641-0071 today to learn more about the memorial service process.
