A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Over the years, we’ve learned something very valuable, yet largely unrecognized by the general public: a funeral, memorial service, or celebration of life offers family and friends the opportunity to say goodbye to a loved one, and sets the stage for the healing process which follows.
It doesn’t have to be an elaborate event. The most important part is in the “coming together” with others to share memories, and receive comfort from one another. It can be a very simple ceremony or one where the personality and lifetime achievements of your loved one are showcased.
Whatever you think would be appropriate; we promise to be with you at every turn to help you plan a service that celebrates your loved one's life in a meaningful way.
Here, you will find information on the services we can provide your family after losing a loved one. If you would prefer to speak to someone directly, please call us at (717) 456-5915 or (800) 550-5915. We will be pleased to share commemoration ideas.
At Harkins Funeral Home our dedicated and professional staff will explain the funeral process, show you the various options available and assist you with designing a service that truly reflects the spirit of one precious life.
