Funeral and Memorial Services
Funerals are an important time to honor and remember loved ones and their lives and should reflect the uniqueness of every individual. Grace Funeral & Cremation Services in in Rockford, IL can assist you with the selection of products and service options that are personalized and reasonably priced.
All too often, families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly don’t want you to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process.
Create Healing Experiences
Losing someone you dearly love is usually emotionally devastating, and in the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be ‘easier’ to just take care of things as quickly, and as simply as possible. But, we hear it every day: easier isn’t always better. You must set the stage for a healthier, happier future by providing your family and friends with an opportunity to start the healing process.
Gathering with friends and family gives everyone the opportunity to share memories, express emotions, and find comforting support. Whether you choose burial or cremation; whether you select a formal funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, the need for acknowledgment of the loss with family and friends is ever present. We can help you create a unique meaningful ceremony to express the genuine individuality of your loved one.
Grace Funeral & Cremation Services offers families a beautiful setting in which to come together to honor your loved one. You may also choose to celebrate their life in a more unique setting. No matter where you decide to gather together, such a service will make a difference in the lives of all who attend.
When your loved one has chosen to be buried, the ceremonies you design usually revolve around the casket being present. Traditions can be followed, where there’s a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or the gathering room at our funeral home. Or you could choose to have a more relaxed memorial service. A private service at the graveside could then follow these more public events.
Let’s just say this: there is no ‘hard and fast’ formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. Licensed Funeral Directors, Bob and Kristan McNames are here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together before your loved one's interment in the cemetery of your choice.
Having trust & confidence in the cremation provider you choose is essential. Grace Funeral & Cremation Services was selected as the exclusive provider of the Cremation-With-Care organization. We have experience caring for families from all walks of life. We were chosen because we are leaders in our profession and are committed to providing dedicated, caring service while upholding the highest level of ethical business standards and cremation practices. We pledge to honor the dignity of the deceased and to offer the greatest measure of respect for your wishes.
Choosing cremation rather than burial does not diminish the value of the wonderful life that you have loved and lost. Cremation, like burial...is simply the final destination of the physical body of the deceased. The remembrance of the heart, spirit and soul of your loved one is a treasure which only you and your family can truly know and honor. Our goal is to help you find joy in the way you choose to celebrate and cherish their memory. Learn more at www.Cremation-With-Care.com.
Cremation only refers to the manner in which you or your loved one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. We want you to know that this decision doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service, because your need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to be cremated. Again, the options are limited only by your imagination. The staff of Grace Funeral & Cremation Services is available to discuss the wide variety of celebratory options open to you.
You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over
Some say it’s harsh to remind you of this, but we know we must. We want you to honor your loved one in a way that allows you to look back, years from now, and be thankful that you did the best you could to honor their life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved. A gift of memories, a gift of healing...a truly priceless gift of peace-of-mind.
