The Traditional Funeral Services at the Sperry & McHoul Funeral Home provide families with an elegant tribute and lasting memorial to the life of their loved one. This is important because it is through the funeral service that a number of emotional needs are met: from recognizing that a death has occurred to embracing the love, support and comfort that friends and relatives have to offer. Funerals commemorate a life well-lived and offer family and friends the opportunity to come together and share their grief, loss and memories of the deceased. Families have come to rely on traditional funerals to help them cope with their grief and, often times, adjust to an abruptly altered life. At Sperry & McHoul Funeral Home, our McHoul Family Directors have the experience to assist families in arranging a Funeral Service that not only meets all of their needs but also exceeds their expectations.
