Receptions following funerals or memorial services range from simple coffee, punch and cookies for an hour at the funeral home or a light lunch of finger food for a stand up reception, to a full buffet meal with staff and beverages.

We know this is a hard time for families – too many things to do in a short period of time and under emotional distress.
