Funeral Homes and Cremation Services

Mexico, MO

The funeral directors of Million Taylor Funeral Homes ask that the families of Mexico, MO consider relying on them for guidance and assistance with the two major aspects of funeral design. The first considerations center on how you desire to honor and celebrate the life of your loved one. After making these vital decisions, we work with you in deciding how to handle the physical remains.

Honoring a life deeply involves assembling those close to you for comfort and support following your loss. Funerals, memorial services and celebrations-of-life are now socially-expected events in the wake of a passing. Regardless of the type of ceremony you choose to pay tribute to your loved one, holding a gathering for commemoration is essential to the healing process.

With the end-of-life options available to you, you can hold the event at any place and in any manner that you would like. There are many choices that lay before you, such as the location of the celebration, the day, the time, the music, prayers, hymns, songs and religious or secular excerpts. You can also have us arrange for the release of doves, balloons or butterflies as the service closes. In addition, we can arrange for keepsake gifts for your guests, such as wildflower seeds or a tree seedling. Our priority is to deliver a dignified, fitting and meaningful event.

After deciding upon these issues of memorialization, we turn to the matter of final disposition. You can either inter your loved one, or have him or her cremated. In most cases, families have clarity on this point; perhaps you were informed by your loved one of his or her wishes. If not, this decision can be burdensome to families. It would be our honor to help you come to the right decision for your circumstances. There is also the option of a “green burial” in some areas.
