An evening reception (visitation) or a reception following a memorial, funeral or graveside service creates an ideal setting for sharing, offering and receiving support.  Receptions may be tailored to specific requests including catering (from light hors d’oeuvres to a complete seated meal), musical selection and performance, and decoration of reception facility.

Receptions may take place at Generations, church halls, restaurant banquet rooms or just about location imaginable, suitable for public gathering.


The viewing of the deceased can also be part of an evening reception.  A viewing customarily takes place at Generations, church or a private residence.   The viewing of the deceased allows for the visual confirmation of death and has shown to be a significant step in the healing process.
