When you first begin the process of designing a funeral, the decisions you'll face might seem completely overwhelming at first. Affinity Memorial Chapel is here to help you tackle the choices one by one and make the journey one of love, healing, and a great life celebration. The process can be broken down into two stages: decisions regarding the service and how you would like to honor your loved one's life, and decisions regarding how you would like to care for your loved one's physical remains.
Whether it's formal or informal, traditional or offbeat, a funeral provides an opportunity for family and friends to gather and support one another in taking the first steps of their healing journey. A service can take place in any setting - at your home, outdoors, or at our facilities, for example - and can incorporate music, poetry, or art in the celebration of a life well-lived. There are endless possibilities for what the service can be, and we're honored to go above and beyond in our duty to meet your personalized and specific requests.
Our staff is experienced in understanding and graciously accommodating the needs of all beliefs, faiths, lifestyles, and relationships. We're here to answer your questions and guide you through the decisions you'll need to make, and will encourage you to take your time to figure out the most meaningful and fitting way to honor your loved one and incorporate the elements that you and your family find meaningful.
Once you have chosen how you would like to celebrate your loved one's life journey, the next decision you will face is about how you would like to care for their physical remains. This can be a difficult or emotional choice for you and your family, and we are there to help provide you with the information you need as we help you to consider your options and make the decision that is right for your loved one and for your family. Once you have chosen between burial and cremation, there are a few additional decisions you'll face:
No matter which path you decide to take, we commit to be there every single step of the way to support and assist you in exploring your options and making an informed decision that feels right for you and your loved one and accommodates your overall budget.
