Memorialization Services

A funeral service can mean many things; some think of what is commonly called a "traditional funeral", while others see that same traditional service as an emotionally unfulfilling event. Fortunately, thanks to a number of unique social forces, there are alternatives. Today, end-of-life commemorative services range from a traditional funeral, to a memorial service, to the increasingly popular celebration-of-life. If you have yet to realize the immense value of such a collective acknowledgement of loss, reach out to us. Call (207) 244-3183 to speak with one of our experienced funeral service professionals.
