A limit of 40 people for seated Funeral or Memorial Services to maintain a safe distance between people seated for the service. 

A limit of 40 people for Visitations or Gatherings with the Service immediately following the visitation.  This is due to the space the seating takes and to maintain a safe distance between people.

Ceremonies at a time of death help us process our most profound thoughts and feelings. They make a significant difference in helping us channel our grief toward healing.  When everyday words and actions are inadequate, the ritual of ceremony provides a needed structure of what to say and do.  The ceremony helps us acknowledge that someone we love has died.  It allows us to say goodbye.  It provides a social support system for everyone grieving the death.  Funerals may be about the person who died, but they are for the living.  A good funeral puts you on the path to good grief and healthy mourning.
