Visitation is also called a viewing or a wake. Having a visitation allows your loved one’s family and friends to gather in our funeral home with your loved one in an open or closed casket to say goodbye. We have several monitors where you can display pictures of your loved one to remember them during different stages of their life.
Funeral or memorial services can be held at a funeral home, church or even at your home.

This can be in a family plot, a memorial site, an urn garden or cremation niche, or other indoor and outdoor locations. Please reach out to our staff members for a detailed list of interment options. Graveside cremation services are similar to traditional ground burials, where everyone is at the burial of the cremated remains, helping to honor your loved.

Green Burial and Eco-friendly Funeral Service Provider
– The compassionate and caring team of our cremation services recognized and embraced the growing popularity of eco-friendly burials years ago. Now, our team is viewed as industry leaders in helping environmentally and cost-conscious individuals and families wanting to respectfully return a loved one to the earth. Also called a green or natural burial, eco-friendly burials are the top choice for thoughtful consumers who desire to minimize their impact on the planet, in life and death. We are keenly aware of all eco-friendly burial details. We have the practical knowledge and experience that is needed to offer our sensitive services in an efficient, cost-effective, and dignified manner. A green burial emphasizes environmental and simple sustainability burials. Instead of being prepared with chemicals such as embalming fluids, the body is simply placed in a shroud and interred without a concrete burial vault or casket. The grave is then allowed to return to nature and our aim is a natural return to the earth. You should know that green burials are not new. Most burials before the mid-19th century were conducted this way and green burials are experiencing growth for several reasons, including simplicity, lower costs, conservation of natural resources, elimination of hazardous chemicals and preservation of natural areas. Green burials have been an important part of our offering for years and our team complies with all needs necessary to offer an easy-to-understand process and procedure for individuals and families seeking this ecological burial choice. Green burials are legal in New Iberia La and throughout the United States. State laws do not require the use of a casket, grave liner, or burial vault. Each cemetery has their own rules and regulations that is allowed in their cemetery. Based on years of experience with green or natural burials we are pleased to offer a comprehensive, affordable, eco-friendly funeral package that includes all necessary licensed, professional, eco-friendly burial funeral services.
