Caskets provide a dignified final resting place for your loved one who has passed away. Caskets are made of wood and metal. Our large casket showroom will allow you to select a casket that fits your needs and your budget. Caskets range in prices from $895 and up.
Very much like caskets, urns range in price from a few hundred to thousands of dollars. Urns are made of several different materials such as metal, ceramic, hardwood, glass and stone. Cremated remains can also be placed in jewelry such and brooches and pendants. They can even be transformed into gems and diamonds. Urns can be selected with the intentions of the family wishes. Cremated remains can be scattered, buried or placed on a mantle in the home of the loved one. There are certain rules when it comes to burying ashes and scattering them. If you have any questions please call Cooney Funeral Home at any time.
Most cemeteries require the caskets be placed in a burial vault. Vaults are made of concrete, steel and marble. They protect the casket and the ground above. Today cemeteries use of heavy machinery to open and close the grave giving us the need for vaults. Vaults also vary in prices depending on the quality and style selected.
The presence of floral arrangements at funeral services date all the way back to the Egyptian ceremonies and the grandeur of the Greek funeral rites. Flowers are the most popular form of a gift for the families of the deceased. If one can’t attend the services, one can always send flowers in memory of. If you have a preferred florist you should turn to them first. Our advice to anyone sending flowers is to contact the funeral director where the services are being held. If anyone knows of a dependable, likable florist, it would be the funeral director.
For families of the deceased, the traditional arrangements from the family is a set of floral ends to be placed at each end of the casket and a floral spray for the top of the casket. Ribbons with words of affection will be placed on each arrangement. They are usually a mix of colorful flowers or can be upgraded using one’s favorite selection such as roses and the cost will vary because of personal preferences.
