We believe your funeral or cremation should be as unique as your loved one. At Krause, there are endless ways for you to create a service that reflects the life of your loved one. We never want you to feel restricted which is why there are countless ways you can personalize a cremation or funeral. Your service can include items such as baseball cards or stamp collections. You can also include special music, recipes compiled for guests with their favorite dishes, or photo boards with their classic cars they owned over the years. Our staff can help you design a memorable tribute while allowing us to handle all the details for you.
An additional way you can customize a service is through your choice of transportation. We have multiple luxury vehicles such as Cadillac hearses and sedans. If you or your loved one is a motorcycle enthusiast, we own a 19th century hearse drawn by a V-twin powered 3-wheel Harley Davidson motorcycle. We also can arrange drivers and other transportation for your family members. We are here to make things easier on you.
One of the ways we want to help you and your family during this difficult time is with our therapy dogs. We understand the special kind of comfort and calming effect animals can bring to us especially during hard times. Our dog Bennie is currently in training but we look forward to the day when he can bring comfort and smiles to our grieving families.
