In this current day and age, there are now a variety of options for final disposition and destination for your loved one’s remains. From traditional full body earth burial or inurnment and burial of cremated remains in a cemetery, to ‘green burials’, to simple cremation with the option of scattering the remains, etc. However, a very important option to consider is whether or not to offer family and friends a viewing period before the burial or cremation occurs. Research has shown that this can be a very important step psychologically for people after a loss. It can help surviving family and friends significantly with processing, coping with, and grieving their loss. Viewing options can vary anywhere from a short private informal viewing period, to a more elaborate and formal gathering.
Even if it is your wish for cremation, burial, or other disposition to take place immediately after death, without offering a viewing, many families still opt to offer a time of gathering for family and friends, such as a visitation or life celebration and memorial service. After all, the celebration of one’s life is also about the ‘living’ - it is an important and valuable experience for the surviving family members during their grief journey, and provides the community an opportunity to show support. Our funeral home and expert staff members work with the families we serve to help provide a comfortable and meaningful time of gathering, personalized to the loved one they have lost, allowing family and friends the opportunity to express their feelings and to show support. Knowing others care and share in your grief will help in your healing.
We are committed to the families we serve, and strive to ensure all the essential details are taken care of. Together we will celebrate the life of your loved one!

Considering estate care planning and end-of-life prearrangements for you or your loved one following death? We can help.
There are a variety of options when prearranging, and likewise, many benefits as well. Options can range anywhere from simply leaving information on file at our funeral home with notes of your preferences and choices, to full planning and prepayment of funeral services and cremation fees or cemetery property.
Here at Mighton Funeral Home, we encourage the prearrangement process to be inclusive and reflective of both your own wishes, and the wishes and needs of your surviving family and friends – this way you can be reassured that following death, your surviving family will be taken care of during their time of loss and grief, AND your own wishes will be followed as well. We encourage everyone to make sure they have their wishes well documented, share them with their family, and ensure they have a legal will and an executor for their will that they trust to follow through on their wishes.
Regardless of the approach you decide to take with prearranging, it will reduce a significant amount of stress, decision making, and burden from your family and loved ones at the time of death, allowing them to focus on their family, their grief, and their own needs during the time of loss – this also helps to avoid conflict, and stress from the worry of making wrong decisions. Not to mention, it can also provide comfort and assurance for financing, and protect against future inflation.
Any prepayments for service are held in trust, and insured, so that you can have peace of mind.
