Traditional Services - Traditional funerals are those that closely follow a pattern set by a person's religious beliefs or cultural customs. These services generally include a time for the family to receive friends, the funeral, a procession to the cemetery, and the interment.
Custom Services - There is a growing trend throughout America of family and friends of the deceased planning a service that reflects personally on the life of the deceased. These services often include testimonials and stories by friends, favorite musical selections, and the displaying of personal effects and photos. It can even include conducting the services at a location other than the funeral home chapel.
Cremation - Nearly one-half of all funerals today include cremation. Generally based on family or ethnic traditions, cremation offers an alternative to earth burial and is gaining more acceptance in the American culture. And David C. Gross Funeral Homes and Cremation Centers' principle of treating all deceased persons with respect and dignity is also adhered to during cremation.
Traditional or Personalized Cremation - Choosing cremation in no way eliminates the choice of combining the cremation with a traditional or personalized service. Many families know the importance of holding funeral services, not only to help the bereaved family in their time of need, but also to reflect and say goodbye to someone dearly beloved. The choice should be a family decision, based on the feelings of both the deceased and family members.
Veterans Services - We can think of no greater honor than that of having proudly served in the armed forces of this country. And for the honorably discharged veterans, there are certain benefits available through the government that can greatly reduce the cost of their funerals and the funerals of the spouse and eligible dependent children.
