A funeral or memorial service is an important part of grieving, and often the painful and first step in the healing process. For thousands of years, funerals have been the preferred means of expressing grief and paying tribute to loved ones. It is truly a celebration of a life lived and remembered.
The Symonds family knows, that when dealing with loss and grief there is no single solution that meets the needs of every individual, but we will strive to ease the process as much as possible for you and your family. The type of service chosen is largely based on the personal preferences of both the survivors and the deceased. The most important task is that you acknowledge the passing of your loved one in a way that is meaningful and helpful in your healing, and that you realize you are not alone. The Symonds family and staff are trained to help you through this difficult time.
A funeral service that is both meaningful and memorable should be as unique as the individual being remembered; it can reflect their personal values, interests and experiences. While planning a funeral service requires making many decisions during a difficult time, you want to organize an event that honors and highlights your loved one’s life.
