Prearranging your funeral is a simple and secure way to provide for your final arrangements. The advantages to pre-arranging are many, but most importantly, it ensures that your wishes will be carried out, down to the last detail. It is a valuable and protected investment and is one of the kindest gifts you can give your family.
We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with two options as you consider making arrangements. We would be honored to talk with you in person.
Please call us at one of our two locations; North Location (810) 985-4351 or our South Location (810) 987-2024 to make arrangements in person with one of our caring, professional funeral directors.

As more people are choosing cremation, funeral service professionals are striving to give consumers a true sense of what their many options are for a funeral service. Often funeral directors find that people have a preconception that they have fewer choices for a ceremony when selecting cremation for themselves or a loved one. Therefore, they request direct cremation and deny the surviving friends and family an opportunity to honor them with a memorial service. In actuality, cremation is only part of the commemorative experience. In fact, cremation can actually increase your options when planning a funeral. The following information is meant to help you build an understanding of what cremation is, allowing you to make an informed decision when arranging a funeral for yourself or a loved one.
Cremation Service Options
Cremation is becoming increasingly popular, especially amongst the baby boomer generation. Among the many reasons for this growing trend is the breadth of options cremation provides for a final memorial service.
Cremation gives people the flexibility to search for types of tributes that reflect the life being honored. But this doesn’t mean that aspects of traditional funeral services have to be discarded. Even with cremation, a meaningful memorial that is personalized to reflect the life of the deceased could include:
A visitation prior to the service
An open or closed casket
A ceremony at the funeral chapel, your place of worship or other special location
Participation by friends and family
Commonly, cremated remains are placed in an urn and committed to an indoor or outdoor mausoleum or columbarium; interred in a family burial plot; or included in a special urn garden. Cremation also gives families the option to scatter the remains. This can be done in a designated cemetery garden or at a place that was special to the person. Today, cremated remains can even become part of an ocean reef or made into diamonds.
Whatever you choose, cremation or burial, traditional services or contemporary celebrations, we are here to help you.
