What We Do | Hawkins-Taylor Funeral Home

Funeral and Memorial Services

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

In the depth of early grief, you might think that it would be ‘easier’ to just take care of things as simply – and as quickly –as possible. But easier – especially in this circumstance – simply isn’t better. You must set the stage for the future by giving your family and friends the opportunity to start the healing process.


Funeral Services

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.



Burial Services

If burial has been selected, usually any ceremonies we design revolve around the casket being present. You can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or memorial chapel.

We’re 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.


Cremation Services

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. We hope                                                                                                 that you will contact us to discuss the                                                                                                      wide variety of celebratory options open to you.


You Can Never Go Back and Do it Over

We hope that the services we render allow you to celebrate your loved such that you will 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.
