"A funeral need not be costly to be psychologically or emotionally beneficial."
Joseph Johnson, owner
Lic. No. FDR 106
This one minister called up and stated: "I've never seen a website like yours - your obituaries with the videos are simply wonderful - this is better than any visitation or funeral service. By the way, what do you charge for your online obituaries?" I told him that we do not even charge a penny, that all of our online obituaries and the videos are a gift to each family we serve. I then told him that our main concern is that every family we serve stays within their financial means so that after the funeral is over they will have peace of mind.
Most cemeteries in California (including National Cemeteries) will require a vault or a liner to keep the ground from sinking. If a person while walking on the cemetery property sprains an ankle and a vault or liner has been used, the law reflects that the cemetery has used due care and prudence and is thus not liable; if a vault or liner has not been used, then the cemetery can be held liable. We at Wildrose Chapel and Funeral Home understand the importance of preserving the environment. We are able to use alternative forms of body preparation that does away with embalming chemicals, thus not allowing those toxic chemicals to contaminate the earth and the water tables. With that attitude in mind, we offer Visitations, Funerals, and Graveside Services without embalming. The families we serve are so pleased with how their deceased loved one looks. Many have even stated that the deceased looks a lot more natural and relaxed without using those toxic chemicals.
Since Covid-19, we still offer Green Burials (without visitations and or chapel/church services) where cemeteries allow.
Embalming is the temporary preservation of the deceased. Embalming is not required by law. However, embalming may be necessary if you are shipping the deceased out of state or to another country. Some religions prohibit embalming.
