Designing a Life Celebration
Your loved one deserves a life celebration that is as unique as they were. Tell the story of their life with the help of professional funeral arrangers at T. J. McGowan Sons Funeral Home. We work closely with you to determine how you wish to celebrate, remember, and honor the life of your loved one. This means deciding what life celebration they would like, where they want to be laid to rest, permanent memorialization options, and other important decisions.
Finding Comfort with Loved Ones
Life celebrations allow loved ones to come together and remember their friend or family member. These gatherings are always unique and based on your loved one’s life and legacy.
A life celebration is a meaningful gathering to honor and heal your loved ones. The service can be traditional or contemporary, customizable to your wishes. A celebration can be held anywhere and in any way. We’ll help you choose the appropriate date, the type of music to be played, and if you would like special songs or prayers performed.
We also help make the day even more memorable with many options for customization. We help you honor your loved one by creating a memorial website, a personalized tribute video, and unique keepsakes for friends and family members.
In-Casket Burial or Cremation?
Whether your loved one preferred a traditional in-casket burial or cremation, it’s important to honor their wishes. Choosing between a conventional, in-casket burial or cremation may be difficult if their preferences were not previously stated in a will or existing funeral arrangements.
If you require assistance through this process, please contact T. J. McGowan Sons Funeral Home Funeral Directors today. We can discuss the pros and cons of both options, helping you find the perfect way to honor your loved one.
For in-casket burials, we’ll help you select the casket, vault, and location of where the casket will be laid to rest. If you choose a cremation, we’ll help you decide where the cremated remains will be placed or scattered. This could be in a mausoleum, cemetery, or even laid to rest in a home memorial garden if allowed by local regulations.
Whether your loved one left funeral arrangements or not, our professionals are here to help you design a funeral that not only shares the life of your loved one, but that tells a memorable story that will be remembered forever.

Flowers are quintessential to any funeral service and can add a sense of peace and tranquility to any setting. Flowers are traditionally known to represent new life, growth, and moving on. With the addition of natural beauty to your loved one’s memorial service, you can ensure the environment feels comfortable and warm.
Floral Arrangements Made with Care
Designing a funeral or tribute service for your loved one can be overwhelming, so we’re here to help you every step of the way. T. J. McGowan Sons Funeral Home offers full floral arrangements and concierge services to those who choose our home to hold their funeral.
We work hard to perfectly place the floral arrangements, adding a beautiful ambiance to your loved one’s service. Working with us every step of the way helps you save both money and precious time that should be spent with loved ones after the passing of someone close.
Funeral flowers are not mandatory but traditionally express love and gratitude for the time spent with someone who has passed away. There are many traditional arrangements to choose from, such as wreaths, sprays, casket sprays, and other arrangements, but we are more than happy to arrange your flowers in a unique way that represents your loved one.
T. J. McGowan Sons Funeral Home can use a local florist for all floral arrangements. We also work with the Tribute Store, providing friends and family with a convenient and comforting online destination to purchase flower arrangements and gift baskets. If you need any information on our floral services, we’re always available to offer you a helping hand in any way you need.
