- General Info:
- Ahearn Funeral Home offer the finest selection of services available to families; whether it be simple or elaborate, burial or cremation, services or funeral pre-planning. The death of a family member or close friend has always been a significant time in all our lives. We feel a great responsibility when entrusted with the needs of the families we serve. The funeral is a summary of one's life and should express their individuality. Our goal is to ensure that your family and the loved one you bring to us is cared for with the utmost dignity and respect. Pre-planning provides peace of mind for all involved. A carefully pre-planned service can be the most comforting to your family, as it spares them from having to face decisions that can be both emotionally and financially difficult at the time of death. It can give them lasting peace of mind to know that they have acted in accordance with your wishes. Making pre-arrangements can be as simple or as detailed as you wish. You can make the selection of the services, casket, music, or simply record the information that will be needed for legal forms and other paperwork. Pre-planning ensures that your family will receive all of the benefits for which they are entitled. It is important that all of your personal records, including bank account numbers, investment information, insurance policy numbers and location of important papers be accessible to your family in the event of a death. Cremation is becoming increasingly popular, especially among the baby boomer generation. Among the many reasons for this growing trend is the variety of options cremation provides for a final memorial service. Cremation gives people the flexibility to search for types of tributes that reflect the life being honored. But this doesn't mean that aspects of traditional funeral services have to be discarded. Even with cremation, a meaningful memorial that is personalized to reflect the life of the deceased could include: A visitation prior to the service, an open or closed casket, special music, a ceremony at the funeral chapel, your place of worship or other special location, and participation by friends and family. Commonly, cremated remains are placed in an urn and committed to an indoor or outdoor mausoleum or columbarium, interred in a family burial plot or included in a special urn garden. Cremation also gives families the option to scatter the remains. This can be done in a designated cemetery garden or at a place that was special to the person.
