Our Special Service…
We believe there are many features of our service that distinguish our funeral home from others, including a funeral director who is responsible and dedicated to you and your wishes from the first time you call on us, through your services and beyond. This extraordinary service begins by asking the right questions and listening carefully to what you have to say. By learning about your loved one we can begin to help you explore ideas on how to best create a meaningful experience that truly reflects the life of your loved one.
In the past we have created many special, unique services. For one mother who loved gardening, we brought in her garden gate and displayed a small garden near her casket. For a gentleman who was a benefactor of the local mounted police we welcomed an honor guard of officers and horses at attention in the parking lot as the casket was carried out. We also can include special music selections, videos, photo collages and memory centers to express the uniqueness of your loved one’s life.For our veterans we can arrange for military honors as a part of the memorial service.
Another distinguishing element of our service is our attention to detail. We provide a greeter/attendant at all times to welcome your family and guests. We understand it can be uncomfortable to visit a funeral home, especially if you have not been to one before. By simply having a friendly, knowledgeable staff member to open the door and guide you to the parlor, we find families and guests feel welcome immediately. It also ensures there will be someone available to answer your questions and meet your requests in a timely manner.
At Maher-Melbourne Funeral Home & Cremation Service you will receive personal, compassionate service along with attention to details that one family referred to as “phenomenal.”
