• Funeral service

A traditional funeral is one normally held in a place of worship or a funeral chapel, either conducted by persons of faith or secular in nature.

A funeral service with the body present, in a casket that may be open or closed. It is often planned and occurs within a few days of death.

The funeral service is a rite of passage for both the deceased and his/her survivors. The service is the centerpiece of the ritual surrounding death.

A funeral service typically includes: music, prayers, readings from scripture, poetry or other prose, a eulogy honoring the life of the deceased and sometimes a sermon focusing on the role of death in human life.

Crain Funeral Home has been providing traditional funeral services to families since 1932.
