Coming together as a community to celebrate a life and grieve as one is a poignant and meaningful way to heal after loss. A funeral can be held in a place of worship, funeral home, or graveside. We offer a range of options for funeral services in Denver and the surrounding areas and can help you plan a personalized gathering to honor and celebrate a life.
A traditional funeral service is a beautiful way for family and friends to say goodbye to a loved one. The service occurs before a burial or cremation. It may include a viewing period or visitation so that guests can pay their respects, say goodbye, and offer words of comfort to the family. After this visitation period, a funeral ceremony will be held before the burial or cremation occurs.
Burial creates a permanent resting place for your loved one and gives family and future generations a place to pay their respects. Burial is also an option for those who choose cremation. No matter where you choose to hold the funeral, at the appropriate time Horan & McConaty will transfer the remains to the cemetery for burial services.
If you have chosen burial, a monument is a timeless tribute to your loved one’s life. Columbine Monuments can help you design a dignified monument for your loved one’s final resting place.
Cremation can follow a traditional funeral service, and remains can be kept for scattering, buried in a memorial park, or interred in our Cremation Gardens®.
Funerals aren’t the only way to memorialize your loved one. Keepsakes such as lockets, charms, rings, and other wearable items imprinted with your loved one’s fingerprint are meaningful ways to keep a part of your loved one close.
Funeral pre-planning can lighten the responsibilities left to loved ones after death by easing their emotional and financial stress, and ensuring that your final goodbye is carried out according to your wishes. Our experienced advanced planners are here for you at any time to answer your questions.
If you are ready to get started, or if you have questions about pre-planning, please request an appointment to speak with one of our funeral directors.
You don’t have to go through this alone. When you choose a funeral home that’s right for you and your family, you aren’t just choosing a place for your family to gather. You’re choosing guidance, expertise, and a partnership that will help you through this difficult time. It’s important to know how to make the right choice.
