A viewing offers family and friends the opportunity to see and spend time with their loved ones after death and prior to the funeral. Viewing the deceased is a very personal choice and is not obligatory, but some people find the viewing a positive experience to farewell their loved one. Letters, photographs, flowers, special mementos or significant objects can be placed in the coffin or casket with your loved one at this time. Viewing your loved one not only can help the bereaved in the grieving process and acknowledge and accept the reality and finality of death, but can offer the opportunity to say a final goodbye.
The viewing can be arranged to take place just prior to the funeral service or within days prior to the funeral service at a time suitable to family and friends. Viewings are usually held at the funeral home in comfort and privacy, with our caring staff available to offer support.
