What We Do
We believe in preserving the memories of the person you love. No two people are alike, and no two services should be alike. Our staff at Higgins Funeral home guides you in selecting a tribute that celebrates uniqueness and holds meaning for your family.
Religious and cultural traditions, costs and personal preferences all shape funeral traditions. These factors help determine whether the funeral will be elaborate or simple, public or private, religious or secular. They also influence the location of the service, whether there will be a viewing or visitation, whether the casket will be open or closed, and whether traditional burial, cremation, or both, is the appropriate measure.
A memorial celebrates a life lived and can take many forms. Photographs, a special song, even a favorite tie or golf clubs, can be incorporated into the funeral service to make it more meaningful. Our staff is trained to help you plan, design and personalize an experience that fully reflects your wishes and the wishes of the deceased.
We also can help with any or all of these details:
- Notifying family and friends
- Writing newspaper obituaries and placing funeral notices
- Working with Cedar Hills Memorial Garden or 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
- Referring family members and friends to grief counselors and support groups
You tell us about your loved one and we’ll give you ideas for personalizing the service. We’ll also walk you through the differences between funerals and memorial services as well as burial and cremation – it can be both.
Though every funeral service is different, we make sure each is a memorable, warm reflection of the person who has died.
