At the Rupert Funeral Home, we believe a funeral service should be personal and unique to celebrate the life of the person who has passed. The service also allows us to take strength from friends and family as we acknowledge the death. A meaningful service can help bring closure to the event and comfort the people who grieve.
Most services take place three or four days after a death. You may prefer an evening or morning visitation with or without an open casket followed by a church service. Some families may also choose to have the service at the funeral home followed by
When a family chooses cremation as the form of disposition, they have several options. Many families choose to have a Traditional Funeral using cremation as the form of disposition. This allows for visitation, service with body present in a church or funeral home followed by the cremation. Family and friends are given the opportunity to see their loved one for the last time and for all to say good-bye.
Others may choose a memorial service without the remains present at the church or funeral home. This choice enables you to hold services at a later date when it may be more convenient for family members to attend. Another option is cremation only, a choice that does not include viewing or memorial services.
Final disposition of the cremated remains include burial in a cemetery. Some families choose to place the cremated remains in a decorative urn and keep them in the warmth and privacy of their own home. Others prefer to scatter the cremains on land, or at sea.
