Traditional Funeral Services in Houston, TX

Traditional funeral services include:

  • Visitation: This is often called a viewing or a wake. Guests come to pay their respects to the deceased by viewing their casketed body and spending time with the grieving family. A visitation can occur at any time before the funeral service.
  • Funeral Service: This event commonly takes place at the funeral home, at a church, or at the graveside. It can include music, the reading of literary or religious passages, a eulogy, and a prayer, and the singing of hymns.
  • Committal Service: If the family plans to bury the deceased, this stage involves the vehicle procession to the cemetery.
  • Funeral Reception: Many choose to host this post-service gathering (or repast) at a reception hall. This is considered a time to share memories, laughter, and support.

A funeral burial service, whether traditional or more modern (memorial service or celebration of life), has two functions: to acknowledge the death and lifetime achievements of an individual, and to bring grieving family members and friends together in support of one another during this difficult time.

If you are interested in making funeral arrangements for a loved one or have questions about funeral costs and planning, we invite you to call our Houston, TX office at 713.682.3663 to begin.
