Traditional Funeral Services
In West Texas, a traditional funeral service includes an arrangement conference, embalming, a day of visitation, a funeral service at your church or at our chapel, and a committal service at the cemetery. Although this is considered a traditional service, there are many variations and nothing is set in stone until your families wishes are met.
