At Thomas S. Lowther Funeral Home & Crematory, we believe that a burial ceremony, whether entombment or interment, should be an experience that is a sacred and a personal tribute which honors your loved one's memory. We offer a selection of burial packages including traditional services and graveside services, within your financial boundaries.
Burial is a time-honored method, popular for many reasons, such as family traditions, and the concept of a location at which families may visit. In most cases, generations of families have chosen burial as the tribute for their loved ones. We are here to guide you at this time and in any decision.

Generally a member of the clergy conducts a service of remembrance. The family is encouraged to participate in the planning of the service as well. Many times family members take part by giving a reading, singing or assisting the clergy. If clergy is not present, family and friends may conduct the service as well.
