Funeral and Memorial Services
All too often, families discount the value of 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. Whether you are in Lafayette, Maurice, Broussard, Abbeville, or Rayne, our licensed funeral directors will assist you with planning a ceremony that is both personal and memorable to honor the life of your loved one. Give us a call or email us to begin planning your loved one's memorial ceremony.
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. You must set the stage for the future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.
Our experienced staff is committed to making your time with us as memorable and as uplifting as possible. Two, full-time licensed funeral directors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist you in the funeral planning process. With decades of experience caring for families of all cultural backgrounds and diverse walks of life throughout the Acadiana area, we pledge to treat you and your loved ones just like our family. We serve one family at a time, to lift the burdens of the funeral planning process, and to assist in creating a tribute that allows you to share your memories, to say goodbye, and to begin the journey toward healing and peace. When you are ready to plan your final goodbye give us a call or email us. We are ready to help you on your journey towards remembrance and peace.
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 in which to come together to honor your loved one. But, you may certainly choose to celebrate their 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.
Our staff is dedicated to providing you with the best possible care, whether it be at our chapel, in your place or worship or in a unique setting in the Acadiana area. We offer packages to fit every budget, and we will assist you to plan a service that is as unique as your loved one to help celebrate his/her life.
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 the cemetery of your choice.
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. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service, because your need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to be cremated. Again, the options are limited only by your imagination. We hope that you will contact us to discuss the wide variety of celebratory options open to you.
Our cremation services are unique in that we have our own on-site crematory, ensuring that your loved one will be in our care until your final goodbyes. We offer many cremation packages from our Simple Goodbye to very personalized cremation services with memorials. For more information about our cremation services visit our cremation services page.
You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over
Some say it’s harsh to remind you of this, but we know we must. We want you 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 their life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a truly priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
