Cason Monk-Metcalf Funeral Directors has been serving the families of Nacogdoches since 1893. For more than a century, our commitment to exceptional service has remained unchanged, yet our funeral home has continually responded to the changing needs of the community.
A formal or informal ceremony or ritual prior to burial, a funeral service often provides a sense of closure to family and friends. Although your faith or culture may dictate some elements of a funeral service, you may want to personalize other elements of the service. At a funeral service, a casket or urn is present, though you may choose to have the casket open or closed.
Visitation, Wake or Viewing
Held the night before or immediately prior to the funeral service, the visitation – also called a wake or a viewing – provides a way for friends and acquaintances to pay respects and offer condolences to your family. As with the funeral service, you may want to decide if you want an open or closed casket should one be present.
Memorial or Tribute Service
At a memorial or tribute service, a casket or urn is usually not present. Otherwise similar to a funeral or visitation, a memorial service gives family and friends a time to come together in your memory and celebrate your life.
As its name implies, a graveside service may be held at the grave site just prior to burial of a casket or urn, and usually consists of final remarks, prayers or memories. The service may occur after or in place of a funeral service.
This location has proudly served the area with exceptional care for years and will help guide your household through funeral service etiquette, customize your memorial, funeral costs, directions to cemeteries, guestbook, online obituary creation, and telling your life story.
