Gerald W. Vickery Jr Funeral Home and Cremation Services
Hello, and welcome to our website. If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, we understand that the additional burden of making funeral arrangements can be overwhelming. There are many decisions to make and details to attend to. We at Gerald W. Vickery, Jr. Funeral Home hope to ease this burden and wish to be your choice in funeral homes.
If you like, contact us any time of day or night and we will answer your questions and address your concerns about funeral planning. Or feel free to take your time and explore the extensive resources on our website in the privacy of your own home.
Every person and family needs to begin the healing process in their own way. Therefore, we offer funeral services in all areas to suit anyone’s desires. We offer traditional funeral services, which usually include visitation with viewing if desired, a funeral service the next day followed by burial. Burials sometimes involve embalming which we can perform and advise you on.
We will prepare and clean the body, dress your loved one in clothes you may choose, and make sure the body looks natural and peaceful for the viewing, if choosing an open casket visitation. We offer a wide choice of caskets in a variety of materials and finishes. Many have custom options available as well. One of our models is sure to fit your needs and tastes.
Cremations are conducted with the utmost dignity and respect, and we put our standards in writing for you to review and verify. We have many different styles of urns to choose from so your loved one’s remains will be stored properly and respectfully. We can offer funeral services to accompany the cremation, or any type of tribute desired. Some families choose to scatter ashes, others to bury them. There are other options as well which we will be more than happy to discuss with you. If the deceased is a veteran, we have special services and tributes to honor their service to our country. A flag folding ceremony is conducted, where the folded flag is presented to the family or next of kin. A memorial service is conducted that is comprised of at least two members of the armed forces, and Taps is played. We offer help with any Veterans Administration paperwork, including for a special headstone and burial arrangements, if applicable.
We will help you with items that can be confusing or difficult to deal with, such as social security paperwork and qualifications. Information about our grief support services is available as well as a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
For friends and family of the deceased, we offer the ability to send flowers directly from our website. They can also send condolences such as gifts of food or sympathy cards. Obituaries are available and notice of updates can be received by subscribing to an email list.
