 ART IMITATES LIFE

Because it preserves the body and presents the deceased in a way that he or she was like when alive, embalming is both an art and a science. Those who want to remember the deceased just the way he or she had lived might choose to take embalming a few steps further than usual. “Extreme embalming,” which is popular in some places such as New Orleans and Puerto Rico, honors the dead by showing them engaging in an activity that they loved while they were alive, flanked by familiar objects or a memorable setting. By positioning the deceased in an accustomed pose in suitable attire in a familiar setting, the goal is to create a “memory photo” of the deceased.

The funeral arrangements you make will be influenced by the lifestyle of your deceased family member; the time of year, your budget, and the number of people in attendance. But you don't have to think about it all on your own. To learn more, please call 609-737-2900. Our experienced and professional staff is here to guide you through the creation of a service that reflects your values, your preferences, and your loved one’s individual life story. We are located at 21 North Main St. Continuous Family Service Since 1881.
