When planning a funeral, one of the many decisions you will make is where your loved one’s final resting place will be. Depending on whether you choose a cemetery, your home, your garden or some other location, you will need to choose an appropriate protective container. Your funeral director will match your specific needs to all available options, which may include caskets, vaults, or urns.
You may also want to purchase a permanent memorialization for your loved one. Memorializations include personalized markers, monuments and a variety of keepsakes - all crafted with care using the finest quality materials.
Today's families are seeking more alternatives when planning a funeral. They have more modern tastes and a greater interest in personalizing the funeral service and are more budget-conscious. To meet this need, Aurora Casket launched the Designer Series in 2007. Instead of traditional crepes and velvets, Designer Series caskets feature rich fabrics in a palette of soft, neutral colors to appeal to a variety of tastes. Clean lines, sharp tailoring and subdued elegance characterize each Designer Series casket. Fabrics such as white eyelet, khaki basketweave, silver herringbone and beige linwood are featured in a number of hardwood, 18 gauge and 20 gauge steel caskets.
Most cemeteries in Greene County require that caskets be placed in an outer burial receptacle capable of withstanding the weight and pressures of the earth above and surrounding the receptacle. Our arrangement conference area provides samples of Wilbert Burial Vaults and other outer burial containers for each family to preview and make their selection of choice.
Memorial Monuments and Markers
Permanent memorials stand the test of time. They are a solid and visible tribute to a life that has been lived. Permanent Memorials individualize and designate a physical place where loved ones can come to pay their respects. Millspaugh Camerato can provide a start-to-finish monument, foot marker and engraving services.
Our staff can assist with floral tributes from family and friends. A wide variety of selections are available that can be displayed at the service, ceremony or visitation. We work with all area florists and will assist you in arranging appropriate floral tributes.
Memorial Registry Gifts
A variety of Memorial Registry Books, Service Folders and Acknowledgment Cards are available that can reflect the life and interests of your loved one.
