Burial with a Traditional Funeral Service

This burial service package consists of a traditional funeral service prior to the actual burial of the deceased. This option is great for those looking to follow tradition and want order. Also it is ideal for those who want a commitment to religion or a sense of spirituality. We can work seamlessly with any church or priest you choose.

The Components of a Traditional Funeral Service:

Here are the general compoents that make up this burial service package.

1. Visitation:

This is also called a viewing or a wake. Guests come pay their respects to the deceased and the immediate family. The casket can be open or closed. Often the visitation is split up into two periods with one taking place in the afternoon from about 2 – 5 pm and the other taking place in the evening from around 7 – 9 pm. These times are not set in stone and can be adjusted based on the needs and wishes of each family. The two periods allow the immediate family a break to eat dinner. The visitation can also be exhausting and emotionally difficult for the family so a break can definitely help. If the deceased has a large circle of family and friends, the visitation might need to be 2 days long. On the other hand, if the group of guests is expected to be small or the family wishes the visitation to be more private then maybe only a few hours is needed for the visitation. Sisto Funeral Home haves an ideal facility to hold the visitation but we can also arrange for it to take place at another location.  

2. Funeral Service:

The actual funeral ceremony is often held at a church, but we can also hold the funeral service at our facility. A funeral service often includes music, the reading of religious or literary passages, the eulogy, prayers, and the singing of hymns. The structure of the ceremony depends on your wishes and religious beliefs. Proper preparation for the funeral service is crucial.

3. Committal Service:

This stage refers to the vehicle procession to the cemetery and the actual burial of the deceased. There is some flexibility when it comes to this stage. Families choose whether they would like the casket lowered into the grave at this time, and they also decide if they want a short service or some final prayers to be said.

4. Funeral Reception:

Many families choose to have a gathering for guests after all the formal ceremonies have concluded. This is a time to share memories of the deceased and offer continued support for the immediate family.

All these components do not need to be included or followed exactly as described above. There some flexibility in terms of each family's wants and needs.
