At Aldrich Funeral Homes, we understand the significance of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our area. We would like to assure you that we are sensitive to your concerns and we are taking precautions to ensure the safety of our families who are making arrangements and attending services with us.
Effective as of March 24, 2020, Aldrich Funeral Homes, will be following the direction of governor Tom Wolfe's COVID-19 Task Force, Department of Health, and the CDC. All services will kept private, for immediate family only. In adherence to federal health guidelines, no gatherings larger than 10 people will be permitted at our services for the foreseeable future.
We will continue to serve to ensure all families are able to celebrate their loved ones as they choose but we ask that everyone respect and adhere to the restrictions mandated by the COVID-19 Task Force. We would like to thank you in advance for your assistance in complying with these mandated regulation during these trying times.
A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique. Many cultures and religions have special funeral traditions and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. This is a moment for you and your family and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.
Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.
A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony.
