Honor your loved one with superior funeral arrangements by Lake Ridge Chapel & Memorial Designers in Lubbock.
What To Bring
The following are some items we will eventually need. While it is not necessary to have any or all of these items at our first funeral arrangements meeting, it is helpful.
several recent, one favorite (for memorial ideas and 150 favorites for a Cinema Life Tribute).
Social Security number, date/place of birth, parents’ and survivors’ full names and their spouse and military service records (if applicable).
deceased would wear on a daily basis: including undergarments, socks/hosiery, jewelry, lapel pin, watch, rosary, glasses, cologne, lipstick, nail polish, etc.
Some religious traditions dictate funeral timing; others have no parameters. While natural instinct pushes us to have funerals soon after a death occurs, we see a dramatic difference between families who rush to plan and complete a funeral in a few days and those who take more time to consider how to celebrate their loved ones’ lives. With many details to coordinate, families who take the time to think through decisions are able to plan more meaningful funerals and they themselves seem more relaxed. Lake Ridge Chapel & Memorial Designers will help in any way possible no matter what your time frame may be.

Grief & Healing
Every person must cope with the loss of a loved on his or her own terms.
At Lake Ridge Chapel & Memorial Designers caring for our families does not end after the funeral service. We understand that following the loss of a loved one it is not uncommon to feel hopeless, lost, and confused. Grief & healing are an imperative part of the process. We will continue to walk with our families by offering grief support classes. Our nine-week class offers practical suggestions for coping with grief & healing. It also allows the participants an opportunity to connect with others in the class by learning and growing together throughout their grief journey.
If you would like more information about our classes, email Sherri Kinard at email@example.com or call (806) 698-8085.
Testimonials from Our Grief Support Class
“I found this course gave all of us a chance to share our experiences, strengths, and hopes. I think we all were able to give hope to members who needed it. I guess this course gave me a chance to get out of “self” and give. Our leader was always so positive and never made me feel I was not being realistic.”
“The grief classes were definitely worthwhile! They made me think about things that I might have otherwise refused to face. Everything was done in a kind and loving way. The room we meet in is a very good size, very comfortable. The atmosphere at Lake Ridge Chapel is very soothing and conducive to healing.”
