At Aubertine-Lopes Funeral Home, we understand the difficulty of choosing a service that best memorializes a loved one. That is precisely why we offer a wide range of services, from the traditional funeral to the unconventional. Though the choices may vary, one thing remains constant, and that is the level of dignity and compassion that we provide to all families.
Regardless what type of service you select, our goal is to assist you in the personalization of the service.
We offer many different items to help express your affection for your loved one, as well as a means for others to share their memories with you. For example, we encourage families to collect an assortment of pictures that celebrate many of the important occasions in their lives. We condense the pictures onto a DVD accompanied by music and broadcast the video from three different monitors throughout our facility. Every member of the immediate family will receive a bronze plaque that replicates the prayer or verse they selected for the memorial cards, as well as a Guardian Angel lapel pin.
Others appreciate the magnetic boards we offer to affix their pictures to them and display them during visitation hours.
We also encourage families to bring mementos, pictures, awards, even family pets to visiting hours. There is a therapeutic value that is achieved when we can share our grief with others in familiar surroundings. We also suggest favorite music selections to be played through our music system during visitation hours.
Should you choose to have the funeral service in the funeral home, we have an organist/soloist who is available to add some musical comfort to the service.
