Realizing that every family we serve is unique, the staff of Thomas McAfee Funeral Home is committed to making each service truly reflective of the life that has been lived while acknowledging the loss that has occurred. We feel the best way we can serve our community is to provide a variety of funeral choices that fulfills their individual and personal wishes. While the traditional funeral meets the needs of some, others find planning a personalized and unique funeral service to be healing and have lasting meaning and value.
We encourage personalization through the use of photographic collages, video tributes, displays of personal memorabilia, and the writing of personal notes. Our extensive music library affords family's limitless options for service music. Also, our staff is well versed in the customs of the various faiths, ethnic groups, and fraternal organizations in our area.
Believing that even the casket and/or urn chosen by a family should reflect the life and interests of the deceased, we proudly offer memorialization products by Batesville Casket Company. Families can choose a particular casket and then select corner attachments and embroidered panels that are symbolic reminders of their loved one. Some caskets have a "Memory Safe" drawer in which family and friends can place a note or small memento. Children find this especially meaningful as they can draw a picture or place a photo of themselves in this safe place.
The majority of our funeral directors are a graduate of the Life Appreciation Institute. This training has equipped us with creative tools and ideas that enable us to assist a family in designing a service that is both meaningful and memorable.
A noted author has said, "Nothing can help us face the unknown future with more courage and optimism than remembering the glory moments, and everybody has some of them." We at Thomas McAfee Funeral Home are committed to offering services that will be meaningful to those we serve for a lifetime and to that end, we pledge to honor and help you express your ideas, beliefs and feelings.
