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 if there will be a viewing or visitation, whether the casket will be open or closed, and whether burial or cremation is the answer.

There are two basic types of funerals, and a myriad of choices in between.

Heath Understands that Every Service Should Be Unique Because we take great care to personalize arrangements, Heath offers services selected to ensure that we provide what is meaningful, needed and affordable. You won’t be overwhelmed because we’re here to help with any or all of these details:

  • Notifying family and friends
  • Writing newspaper obituaries and placing funeral notices
  • Working with area cemeteries
  • Securing death certificates
  • Securing a member of the clergy to conduct services
  • Arranging floral tributes
  • Assisting the family with legal and insurance matters, including Social Security and Veteran’s benefits
  • Arranging for musicians.
