Where to Start

Where To Start

With the loss of a loved one, the process of making funeral preparations can seem overwhelming to the family. The Stevens staff will provide support and knowledge to guide you through each step of the way. Our experience will support you in planning a service that best reflects your wishes and your loved one's wishes.

Planning a Service

A funeral or memorial service can take place in any setting:

  • At your home
  • At a church
  • Outdoors
  • At our facility
  • Or other appropriate setting

The Stevens staff is experienced in accommodating the needs of all beliefs, faiths, lifestyles, and relationships. We will help you accomplish the service that will bring you and your family the most comfort and honor to your loved one's life journey.

Caring for a Loved One's Physical Remains

Once you've chosen how you'd like to celebrate your loved one's life journey, the next decision you'll face is about how you'd like to care for their physical remains. This can be a difficult or emotional choice for you and your family, and we'll provide you with the information you need as we help you to consider your options and make the decision that is right for your loved one and for your family. Once you've chosen between burial and cremation, there are a few additional decisions you'll face:

  • For a burial, you'll need to select a casket and a cemetery, and choose between a ground burial and entombment in a mausoleum.
  • For cremation, you'll need to select an urn and choose whether to bury, entomb, or scatter the cremated remains, as well as where you'd like to do so.
  • No matter which path you decide to take, we'll be there to support you and assist you in exploring your options and making an informed decision that feels right for you and your loved one.
