Visitation Period

Visitation offers a time and place for relatives and friends to share support and encouragement with the family. The deceased person may be present at the visitation either with a burial service or cremation service. With direct cremation, the deceased cremated remains may or may not be present depending on your desires.

Things to Consider:

  • The length of visitation period differs with each family.
  • The family does not need to be present for the entire visitation.
  • Visitation can be limited to specific hours.
  • Some friends like to come when the family is not present.
  • Many families announce a limited time when they will be available but maintain an extended time when the public is invited.
