There is a lot of talk about "personalizing" funeral services, but the reality is often quite different. When we lose a loved one, we're generally in a state of shock, we're tired, and we're grieving. Our state of mind is simply not in a position to accomplish a great level of personalization. Time also plays a major factor.

There are a couple areas, however, in which we can add a great deal of personalization...our music selections and our tribute slideshow. These items have the ability to do a great job of reflecting our loved one as an individual.

AND the bulk of the work falls to your funeral director. Whether it is a genre of music or specific songs that were a favorite of your loved one, let your funeral director create a playlist that is perfect. Talk to your funeral director about the things that were important or beloved by your loved one, and then let us create a slideshow that does a great job of reflecting that life, so precious to you.

We are very well versed in music and quite creative. There isn't much we can't figure out. We have helped families prepare playlist that are rap, rock, classical, oldies, tejano, cajun, and even punk. We have created slideshows that feature fishing, crafting, gardening, golfing, and even gambling. Don't hesitate to challenge us. We are there to work our very hardest to provide a most beautiful tribute that reflects the life of your loved one.

Take a look at the slideshow for Mr. Montana. His video is a good example of personalizing a tribute slideshow.

Crematory Installation September 2017

Over the last few weeks, Mission Funeral Home has been working hard behind the scenes to prepare for our new crematory installation as we reinvest in the families we serve.  Many may not be aware that we own and manage our own crematory.  We do this because the families we serve are our top priority, and we want to be personally involved in every aspect of that care.  Mr. Robert Cisneros is a certified crematory operator and personally oversees every cremation.  Your family's funeral director is personally responsible for insuring all documents meet state and city rules and regulations.

Several members of the families we serve helped us with the installation, along with some serious heavy equipment operators.  The logistics were much more than one may think.  We took several photos of the operation and thought our families might like to see what a crematory retort looks like and the work involved in installing one.  We hope that by sharing this little behinds the scene look, our families will see that not all we do involves wearing a suit, and that even when we're not in a suit, we're still working for you.  We thank our families for entrusting us with the care of their loved one, whether cremation or burial is your choice. 

If you are considering cremation and would like more information, please call 512-444-3355, and we can schedule you an appointment to learn more about cremation and how we can help.
