Traditional Burial: Funeral arrangements that include a viewing/visitation (wake) and funeral ceremony, followed by interment at a cemetery.
Traditional Cremation: While very similar to traditional burial, you may purchase or rent a casket and the difference is that following the funeral; the deceased is transferred to our crematory instead of the funeral procession going to the cemetery.
Funeral Services: The funeral service can be held at the funeral home or in your church or synagogue. Beckman-Williamson Funeral Home serves people of all faiths, working closely with the clergy to make certain that the service is meaningful.
Viewing/Visitation: This can be for one or two days or just prior to the funeral service. Having visitation gives family and friends an opportunity to express their condolences and work through their grief. Photographs and memorabilia can be displayed to pay tribute to the life of the deceased, making the visitation and funeral more personal.
