Funerals as Unique as Your Life

Life is full of opportunities to show someone we love them. One such opportunity is the funeral or memorial service. Such a loving event celebrates the choices they made, the relationship you shared, and honors the memory of your loved one.  At Harden/Pauli Funeral Home, we help you create a service that fits the life your loved one lived. We serve families from all walks of life. This picture to the right was a young special needs man who loved playing softball, so we arranged to have services on a softball field with a softball game after the services to celebrate his love of the game. We have had an antique John Deere tractor at our funeral home to celebrate the life of a Umatilla resident who collected antique tractors, a Harley Davidson motorcycle in our chapel in honor of a Mount Dora resident who was an avid rider and even a collection of Corvettes in the parking lot in honor of a Corvette Club of Tavares member. We served the family of a gentleman who was always involved with the Zellwood Sweet Corn Festival and were able to incorporate ears of corn into the service.

    It's important to take the time to acknowledge the uniqueness of the deceased: the individuality of their personality, and the uniqueness of their life's path. Not just for them, but for you; it affirms the relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love – for the both of you.
