Even though common sense and good discretion are always the best guides to proper funeral etiquette, a few principles still apply.

Following the news of a death, you can obtain information by reviewing the death notice in the newspaper, our website or by contacting the Chapel entrusted with the arrangements. The information contained in the death notice will be family members, service details and perhaps a suggestion by the family about flowers and charities in remembrance of the Deceased.

Visitation – Service/Mass/Life Celebration

Your attendance will say more then words. Commonly, people express their support… “I’m sorry for your loss” or “Please accept my condolences”.

If you are unable to attend any part of the services, you may consider a call to the family, a card, email or on-line condolence.


Many times it is not the children that fear the funeral home, it is the adults. There are no set rules that determine whether or not a child should be a part of this family event. It is a family event and children should be a part of it. It is essential that before a child visits the Chapel, there needs to be a discussion at a level they can understand of what is happening, what will happen and what they will or may see at the Chapel. We have an extensive resources about this subject, we encourage you to contact us.
