Phillip Funeral Home believes a funeral service should be a special tribute to the life of a loved one. We encourage families to share their ideas with us on personal touches and wishes that are important to them. We will arrange for these to become a part of your meaningful service.
A funeral gives friends and relatives an opportunity to express the love and respect they feel for someone who is important to them. Many times, just seeing how much others cared can be a tremendous help to a family in adjusting to their loss.
Personalizing a funeral to reflect the life lived can be comforting to both family and friends. We believe that a funeral should be a celebration of life; a time for friends and family to gather and remember. Families are encouraged to bring photos, music or mementos to make the funeral service a tribute to the life of that special someone.
The Funeral and its Functions
Every family is different, and not everyone wants the same type of funeral. Funeral practices are influenced by religious and cultural traditions, costs and personal preferences. These factors help determine whether the funeral will be elaborate or simple, public or private, religious or secular, and where it will be held. They also influence whether the body will be present at the funeral, if there will be a viewing or visitation, if so, whether the casket will be open or closed, and whether there is a burial or cremation.
