McMullen Funeral Home and Crematory provides burial services for families in Columbus, Georgia and surrounding areas. There are many ways to honor a loved one alongside a casket burial. Traditionally, a burial has been accompanied by a visitation, viewing, wake or graveside service. But don’t let tradition stop you from honoring your loved one in a creative way if you would like to. Many families choose to have a traditional service, and other families choose a celebration of life that captures the essence of their loved one.
Coming together for a ceremony can be a great comfort to friends and family. While we are certainly honoring our loved ones with a funeral service, the funeral service is truly for the living. It's a time where family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances come together to share stories, offer support and embark on the grief journey together. It's a time for healing.
A ceremony can incorporate faith traditions, cultural customs, and personal touches which help make it special and personalized. We guide families through these choices every day and encourage them to do what feels right to honor their loved one.
Services prior to the burial can take place at our welcoming, reverent facilities if you wish. Our compassionate funeral directors ensure the service is personalized in every way to create a comforting experience for friends and family.
