Funeral Etiquette

Let us guide you through the ins and outs of your funeral experience.

When attending a service at Cavin-Cook Funeral Home & Crematory....

DO:

  • Park in designated areas directed by the funeral assistants.
  • Please watch over children to ensure their safety.
  • Be respectful by keeping quiet around visitors who wish to reflect.
  • Turn off your mobile devices.

DONT’S:

  • Stay longer than you want to. It is all about what you are comfortable doing. You do not need need to linger if you’ have celebrated your loved one in a way that feels right to you.
  • Be afraid to laugh and share happy memories and stories. Laughter and telling happy stories can be the best medicine on the road to healing.
  • Feel that you need to look at the deceased. If this is something you are not comfortable doing, there is no need to do so. A service is about your comfort level and your desire to celebrate the person in a way most meaningful to you.
  • Let your children be too loud and disturb others. As always, respect others and practice awareness.
  • Leave your cell phone ringer on. No one needs that additional noise when they are trying to reflect.
  • Be afraid to make a mistake or do something wrong. You are doing something right just by coming and caring.
