...A Life Well Lived

Family and friends are choosing less traditional ways of honoring the passing of their loved one. There are many reasons - an individual's last wishes, spiritual beliefs, cremation or the desire to share a unique celebration of a special life. Earlyhouse provides a beautiful, private location and professional services to create a meaningful, fitting tribute.

During this difficult time, assistance is available as you need or want it, without overwhelming you with decisions. Our experience as planners will guide you and allow you to spend your time with family and friends, confident that everything will be taken care of. A comforting meal, the repast, is served by our expert staff. The symbolic release of a white dove or doves never fails to inspire. Sharing the memories and stories about your loved one gives family and friends a sense of closeness, comfort and closure.

It would be our honor to share this important day with you.

Whispering Wings at Earlyhouse

A White Dove Release is a powerful symbol of closure and a new journey. Doves are a timeless symbol of love, hope and faith. We provide beautiful cages and are here to assist you with the release.

"Mourning is one of the most profound human experiences that it is possible to have. The deep capacity to weep for the loss of a loved one and to continue to treasure the memory of that loss is one of our noblest human traits." ~ Shneidman

Man's Best Friend...

Many people consider our pets to be a part of our family. If you are planning a memorial celebration of life, please consider bringing your loved one's well behaved pet to the service. Animals have a great ability to heal and make people feel better, just what friends and family need during this difficult time.

Personal Touches

Personal touches will make the memorial a unique celebration of your loved one's life, rather than the mourning of a death. We can help you plan and execute some of these ideas, at no additional charge, including.......

A Memory Table displays memorabilia of the person's life, including prized possessions, trophies, photos and awards, and other items signifying accomplishments or hobbies. It also makes a great place for guests to gather around and reminiscence.

Memory Cards are note cards that say, "My Special Memory of ___". Family and friends are encouraged to write their memories of their loved one on the cards. These memories can be shared for generations.

Music is universal and can add a very special touch and feeling to the life celebration. All music - country, roll-n-roll, jazz and other favorites- has a place in remembering the life and special moments with our loved ones.

Earlyhouse and included services are available for $400 plus catering costs for up to 3 hours and 100 guests. Minimum catering count is 35
