Rock Funeral Home is your assurance of quality, value, caring service and exceptional customer satisfaction. Rock Funeral Home is committed to helping families create memorial services that will be long remembered for the manner in which they pay respect to the unique lives that have meant so much to family and friends. Ever since the beginning of civilization, the custom of caring for the deceased, honoring a life passed, and supporting those who mourn has been at the core of our humanity. From the beginning of time, funeral service rituals were truly for the living giving those left behind an opportunity to grieve, accept the loss, and find closure. Even today, it is an important part of the healing process. Deciding how you would like to remember and honor your loved one is really a personal choice. With so many options available, you can customize a fitting tribute that reflects the life and passions of your loved one. Today, funeral and memorial services can be as varied as the individual they represent. That?s why we take time with each family we serve to get to know their loved one so that we can help them plan a fitting tribute to someone special in their life. No matter how you choose to remember, you have many options when planning a service, including: Type of Service ? Visitation ? Memorial Service ? Grave side Service ? Chapel Service ? Church Service ? Committal Service ? Special Gatherings Time and Place A funeral or memorial service can take place at any time and can usually be held in the location of your choosing. A service can be held, not only immediately following a death, but also at a later designated date or as an annual event of remembrance. Personalization Services Funeral and memorial services may be as varied as the individual they represent and are most meaningful when they provide an understanding of that person's special life. A funeral can be as simple or elaborate as you wish. The things that had meaning to your loved one will also give meaning to the people who attend the service. Sharing memories with others can be as simple as playing a special song or telling a personal story. It might also involve displaying photos or items from a favorite hobby. Your funeral arranger will work with you to help plan a funeral, memorial service, or gathering that reflects your family's wishes and honors and captures the spirit of the person who was so special to you. ? We all realize that the best decisions are always those that are made calmly, rationally, and with ample information in hand. That?s why it makes such good sense to plan ahead by taking care of as many plans as possible in advance so that difficult decisions won?t be left to your loved ones at a time of confusion and grief. ? Ensure that your wishes will be followed At some time, most of us have probably talked or joked with others about what type of funeral we might have. But would your spouse, children, or close friend really know what you might have wanted? When you think about it, it makes sense to take the time to make these decisions now, with the people you love, so that they will not be responsible for doing this alone. Making your wishes known today will help ensure that they are followed tomorrow. Unfortunately, just telling someone about your final plans is not always enough. By taking just a few moments today, in the privacy of your own home and at your own pace, you can decide how and where your final arrangements will take place.
