Kernan Funeral Service | (313) 381-2345 | 1020 Fort Street, Lincoln Park, MI 48146
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 future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.
Gathering with friends and families 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 of acknowledgment of the loss with family friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique. meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of a 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.
Contact us today to discuss the possibilities.
If burial has been selected, most 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 a memorial chapel. Or you could decide to have a more relaxed service, even in your family home.
Let's just say this: There are no -'hard and fast'- rules for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. We're here to listen your concerns, share your 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 way you can honor your loved one's life. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service; your need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to cremate. 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.
Some says 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 coukd 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.
