When a family chooses cremation, but does not want to have a ceremony or service, a Simple Goodbye® is a good option to consider.
A Simple Goodbye® is a time for family to say goodbye to their loved one at our funeral home. It doesn’t involve embalming, a public viewing or memorial service; it’s private time for those closest to the deceased a time to pay their respects and say farewell prior to cremation.
Your loved one will be bathed, dressed and prepared for viewing in such a way that protects the health and safety of the visitors. You will want to ensure all family members know ahead of time to expect the level of preparation to be tasteful and comforting, but less than they may expect to see at a traditional funeral service.
Your loved one will be placed in the cremation casket or container of your choosing. Containers range from a simple open cardboard box to a traditional casket. Your funeral director can explain more about your options and pricing.
The Simple Goodbye®
is not a funeral service, so there will not be a minister or officiant, music or a ceremony of any kind. If you would like to have these elements in your gathering, or more than ten guests and thirty minutes, we suggest you consider our memorial service
or funeral service
