Planning a funeral can be difficult. According to the National Funeral Director's Association the average funeral costs $6,500. La Paloma provides simple and affordable choices by offering complete funeral and cremation packages. To help ease the burdens at this tender moment, we can meet in your home if needed. 
   
We've tried to make our options as clear possible for you. With the exception of our basic services fee, you can pick and choose any items you like to put together a funeral that's right for you. Our services are divided into 7 main categories:
  •   Primary Services   •   Simple Services
  •   Care and Preparation of the Body   •   Miscellaneous Merchandise and Services
  •   Facilities, Staff and Equipment       Grief Support Listings
  •   Automotive Equipment
  •   Burial Merchandise

If you want to put together your own funeral, start with Primary Services (our basic services fee is mandatory, but everything else is your choice), then add what you like from Care and Preparation of the Body, Facilities, Staff and Equipment, Automotive Equipment, Burial Merchandise or Miscellaneous Merchandise and Services.

If you'd like modest arrangements, you can find cremation, burial and other options without ceremonies in our Simple Services category. If you don't see something you'd like, just ask. We'll do our best to accommodate you. Your suggestions are welcome, too.
