The Harkins Way
We realize losing an infant is an unforgettable experience. We offer no cost cremation services and burial services at a minimum fee. We strive to assist you through Christian love and support as you embark on this difficult journey. We can come into your hospital room and receive your baby into our compassionate care thus avoiding your child going to any other part of the hospital.
Each infant placed into our care will receive a handcrafted
blanket created with love by two caring ladies who donate their time and talents.
Complete outfits are available if you so wish that are also handcrafted and donated by a group of caring ladies.
Patti or Megan can come to the hospital and meet with you/your family regarding necessary paperwork or this can be done in our funeral home.
Filing of the official documentation with the state health department and the cremation process.
Choice of our in-house selection of urns – metal, wood and marbelon.
A Willow Tree “Angel Embrace” Figurine and a floral bouquet to take home.
Remembrance cards created just for your baby from in stock images – your photos and verses.
Candle Lighting Service in our funeral home with up to 20 guests. A small service to remember your baby with comforting words, prayers and the lighting of votive candles with a time of special music played.
