A non-commercial, family-centered funeral that involves the family and its community in caring for and preparing the body after death, for burial or cremation. Rituals and ceremonies in the home may also be included.
As a Home Funeral Guide, Jacki may assist the family with instruction regarding bathing and dressing the body; laying the body out on a bed, sofa or table in the living room; educating family on cooling of the body.
Additional assistance with visitation or the wake in the home is available.
I was amazed at how comfortable I was having Patricia here in the home after she died. It was actually very reassuring. Jacki was very supportive and knowledgeable, answering any questions I had.
