Traditional burial services usually intend to impart feelings of comfort and hope to attendees. Oftentimes, there are many references to the departed being in a better place. Traditional burial ceremonies usually occur over a two-day period, having three well-defined events. First, there is a viewing, visitation or wake. At this point of a traditional burial ceremony, the loved one’s casketed physical remains may be displayed for several hours. Family and friends have the opportunity to see the body and pay their final respects.

The funeral service follows the viewing, and this is when the officiant and relatives and friends of the departed participate in a formal celebration of his or her life. This is when music is performed, scripture and literary passages are read, prayers are said and hymns are recited. This event usually takes place in a church.

The last step is the interment, when the loved one is buried at their place of final disposition. This act can include a committal service, which is a brief ritual featuring prayer that occurs at the graveside after the funeral service. The funeral directors of Wiscombe Memorial have been serving families for 26 years and are dedicated to providing quality, compassionate traditional funerals and burials at affordable prices.
