Most caskets are made of wood or metal. Some wooden caskets are covered with cloth. Some metal caskets have "sealing" features, including gaskets resistant to water, air, and underground life. Almost all caskets are fabric-lined. The best way to avoid emotional over-spending is to discuss casket selection ahead of time. If you would like to preview caskets offered by Aabbey Memorial, you are welcome to do so any day of the year during regular business hours.
The funeral helps the friends who attend. After someone we care about this, most of us want to give of ourselves. We want to do something, but what? The funeral provides us a way to show our support of those who are left behind. The funeral helps all who are present. By reflecting on the life of one who has left us, we find time to renew our beliefs, our faith and our spiritual values.
