Sacred Crossings Funeral Home is owned and operated by certified death midwives committed to maintaining the sacred while holding you and your loved-ones with care and compassion every step of the way.
We uphold that death is not the event of the last breath but a transition that begins months before and extends for up to three days after.
During the immediate days following the last breath, the soul, spirit or what is often referred to as the ‘luminous body’ separates from the physical body and transitions to the next phase of it’s journey.
The Home Funeral, our signature service allows more time for the soul of the loved-one to depart and for the bereaved to ease into their grief and begin to gently integrate the loss into their new lives.
Whether you require a direct cremation, burial, or a home funeral it is recommended to make an appointment before need, to discuss your wishes and make a plan.
