GRAVESIDE SERVICE

Published: June 14, 2021

Also known as a committal service, where the body is committed to the ground, a graveside service occurs at the cemetery, with family and friends paying their final respects. A graveside service often immediately follows a traditional funeral and may be the only service a family chooses. Typically, the casket is in place by the time service attendees arrive.  It is usually a relatively short and simple affair with a eulogy given by a pastor or funeral director on the family’s behalf. This type of service can be for persons interred in a casket or those individuals who chose cremation. In many cultures, it’s common for guests to shovel dirt into the grave or throw a flower onto the coffin.

The opportunity to say a final goodbye at a funeral service helps many people cope with their grief, and encourages the family and community to mourn together. JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME (668-1960) can assist you in planning and coordinating all of the details of a funeral service. Our funeral home is located at 48 Common Street. We have been serving our community for more than 50 years.

DEATH NOTICE OR OBITUARY

Published: June 7, 2021

Celebrating and acknowledging a loved one through an obituary or death notice is rooted in American culture. It is common to put one in a newspaper and online. People often confuse the two, and it may be challenging to know which best suits your needs. Simply put, a death notice announces the death of someone without providing essential information, while an obituary is an account of one’s life in detail. Funeral homes usually assist family members with death notices, particularly if they request publication. It is a more customary practice for a family member or a professional journalist to write an obituary. There are no laws that require a death notice or an obituary to be published.

A funeral service is a time for human sharing in its deepest sense. You and the ones you love are at the very center of the process, and the choices you make will determine its significance for you. As you participate in the planning of the funeral service, you help create a meaningful experience for everyone. At JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME, our goal is to help people complete the relationship with the one who has died and to provide a climate that encourages each person to give and receive emotional support. We are located at 48 Common Street, where we have been serving our community for more than 50 years. Please call 668-1960 for more information.
