Dobbs Funeral Home maintains a tradition of personal attention to our families' needs and individual desires. We offer professional direction of services, whether they are held in our funeral home, in a church, at a cemetery, or in a private home or other location. Many details have to be considered, and decisions made, in arranging a service, whether at the time of need or in advance. We at Dobbs Funeral Home want to make it easier for you by providing helpful information.
Minister, Priest, Pandit, Rabbi, Celebrant... In accordance with your faith, we will consult with your choice of clergy and provide the necessary information for the service. Our staff is knowledgeable and experienced in the funeral practice of most religions, as well as those of the various fraternal orders. We will adeptly oversee proper adherence to ceremonies and rituals. Some of our client families choose to honor their deceased through non-religious forms of recognizing their loved one, and we can assist with that as well.
Government and Insurance Payments... We assist our client families in filling out and filing forms for Social Security, Veteran's benefits, insurance, pensions, union benefits, Civil Service benefits, etc. Of course, these matters are handled in strictest confidence. We do have an in-house Notary Public for your convenience.
Out-of-Town Arrangements... When a death occurs outside our community, you can rely on Dobbs Funeral Home to handle all the details. We have contacts in most every city in the United States and many cities throughout the world. We can arrange services or burial according to your wishes almost anywhere. In this way, we can help you avoid duplication of effort, unnecessary expense, anxiety and needless travel. We can arrange transportation for the deceased and escorts anywhere through world-wide affiliates.
Embalming and Viewing Policy... Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary, however, if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with viewing. If you do not want embalming, you usually have the right to choose an arrangement that does not require you to pay for it, such as, direct cremation or immediate burial. If you do not want embalming, we provide refrigeration immediately in lieu thereof, and we require it after the fifth day. Our charge for refrigeration is a per-day charge.
You may have a funeral service with an un-embalmed body present; however, public viewing of an un-embalmed body is not allowed. Only the immediate family will be allowed to view an un-embalmed body for identification purposes, if viewing is possible.
Funerals are most meaningful when they are personalized. When you are planning a funeral, think about the special qualities of the person who died and what he or she meant to others. How can you capture this unique life? With creative ideas and help from us, the funeral of your loved one will be a celebration filled with lasting memories.
