Searching for funeral homes is especially difficult after losing a loved one, much less making funeral arrangements. There are so many details to take care of and decisions to make during this difficult time that it can be overwhelming. We at Roberts Funeral Home understand and will be there for you through every step of the funeral planning process.

A funeral is a special ritual that promotes healing among the living while showing respect for the deceased. Planning a funeral is one of the first steps in alleviating your grief, as hard as it may seem.

You may have many questions during this difficult time. Do you want to opt for cremation or would you prefer a burial? Is embalming necessary? What type of ceremony or tribute is appropriate? We can help you with all of these decisions and more.

While every situation is unique, a typical funeral with a burial will entail embalming, choosing a casket, a viewing or visitation, a funeral ceremony and a burial ceremony. Cremations may or may not have a ceremony, but many do. Family may keep the ashes in an urn, bury them or scatter them in a place that was special to the loved one. Many types of ceremonies are possible with cremation.

Need help choosing a casket? There are a range of caskets available in different finishes and materials. Wooden caskets come in a variety of hardwoods with choices of furniture. Metal caskets can be steel or bronze. There are also a variety of interiors available for you to choose from.

Urns for cremation ashes come in a variety of types depending on the final disposition of the remains. We have urns appropriate for burial, display and other dispositions. They come in marble, ceramic, wood and metal. Many different styles are available in each material from traditional to modern.

If your lost loved one was a veteran of the US military, we offer a special Military Funeral Honors (MFH) ceremony during which a flag is folded and presented to the family, and Taps is played. There will be at least two members of the armed forces participating in the ceremony.

We also wish to honor those who have been killed in the line of duty in the armed forces, as a firefighter, police officer, or emergency medical service (EMS) provider. For them we have a Fallen Heroes program where we offer many traditional funeral services at no charge. Check the link on our website for more information.

What the families we serve say...

I did not meet any of your staff except for Daniel Gilliland and another gentleman, whom I forgot his name. Both men were extremely nice to me and for that I am grateful.

I ran into the gentleman (Whom I forgot his name) at Judy's country store a couple days later, and he took the liberty of waiting for me outside so that he could offer his condolences and also ask if there was anything else he could do for me.

In my book that is going out of your way to make sure everything was done to my satisfaction.

Kenneth Miller, husband of Theresa Miller
