Making funeral arrangements
October 21, 2012

The Caribe Funeral Home offers numerous cremation options to communities of New York including Bergen Beach, Brownsville, Canarsie, East New York, Flatlands, Highland Park, Marine Park, New Lots, Spring Creek and Starrett City. Choosing cremation often makes final arrangements more affordable, and need not limit the ways in which you can commemorate the life of a loved one. Although the funeral professionals of the Caribe Funeral Home offer excellent direct cremation services, it is recommended that families hold a funeral or memorial ceremony when choosing to cremate their departed. This allows for a healing experience unlike any other for family and friends.

The Caribe Funeral Home has extensive experience at arranging funerals that come before a cremation. We have an impressive selection of cremation caskets and rental caskets to choose from. A family may also opt to have a wake or visitation before the funeral service, and such an event can feature either an open or closed casket. At the Caribe Funeral Home, only the best preparatory services are administered. Your loved one will be cleaned, sanitized, embalmed, dressed, cosmetized and casketed in a manner that will exceed the expectations of the family and its guests. We also handle the funeral flowers and the musical arrangements at the family’s request. All our packages include a free casket spray and due to our working relationship with the flower shop located next door, we can get you a discount on the remaining flowers if you receive all the funeral services from us. We have pastors on-hand that are able to officiate the service, or we can schedule with the clergyperson of your choosing.

For memorial gatherings, we have many ideas with which to honor your deceased in a fitting and memorable way. For example, we assist the family in setting up themed displays. Such a theme can be manifested through choices of music, decoration and locale. The funeral directors of the Caribe Funeral Home also encourage families to assemble pictures and mementos that showcase the personality of the deceased. These can be placed on a table along with the urn and a recent photograph of the loved one. Some families create memory videos with the help of friends and relatives. These videos can be played on our equipment using a flash-drive or DVD. We have bereavement thank you cards and prayer cards available. We also have decorative urns to choose from that may be personalized via engraving or by attaching a plaque.
