Funeral

For millennia the death of someone we love has been attended with ritual, a gathering of friends and family, with songs and sharing, and with caring for the body of the deceased.  Traditions change in various cultures, but the funeral is the way in which people share in their grief, celebrate a life lived, and prepare to live on without their loved one. 

At Speaks we exist to care for families as they both grieve and celebrate life.  We are honored to be chosen to help and treat people with dignity and care. Our service options are such that we can accommodate any plans that a family may wish to make and we provide logistical and specialized care in a wide variety of ways. 

Our website provides a resource for those who wish to plan, to understand both what is possible and what is needed, and to bring support to families as they make arrangements.  We are here to help.
