Throughout The United States the "American Traditional Funeral" was established as a customary element of the "American Traditional Family". Historically, the "American Traditional Funeral" primarily consisted of the deceased being properly embalmed, cosmetized, dressed and placed in a casket. This enabled the family to come to closure by viewing the deceased while preparations were being scheduled for a church, home, funeral home, or graveside service. Prior to the 1950's most "wakes" were held in the family home. Today, even with the newness of cremation, we still see much of the same details that were widely utilized by our ancestral families. Seagle Funeral Home has been a traditional piece of importance to many families in Southwest Virginia since our formal beginnings in 1880. Through our experienced, and licensed owners we are continuing to provide the same traditional services with a modern touch of class.
A well planned service warms the soul and illuminates the memory. With cremation, the options for a more meaningful tribute are limited only by the imagination. In keeping in step with the Traditional American Funeral, one may exercise their choice of selecting a "Full Service Cremation." One may be embalmed properly, dressed, cosmetized, and placed in an inexpensive cremation casket. The benefits are: (1) allowing a final closure for family and friends, (2) allowing for a traditional service either in a church or the funeral home and cremation to follow. Your choice for permanent memorialization provides you and your family a lasting focal point for healing and strength - and an ongoing expression of love. Personalization turns an urn into a lasting, cherished treasure. Almost any combination of memorial and message can come together in the perfect tribute.

Simplicity is defined in the Random House Dictionary as "Freedom From Complexity" Brevity is also defined as "Shortness of Duration" Simplicity and brevity have always been inculcated in many of our requested funerals here at SEAGLES. Our belief has always been that a good funeral director is one that is never seen or heard. Many of our simple funerals have been designed as a classical yet simple graveside service.
One element, other that the computer, that has changed our ways of life has been the mobile family unit. Traditionally families were stationary to one geographical region throughout their generations. Easier access to travel and uncertain job securities have provided most American families with an inconsistent locality that they call home. Here at SEAGLES our licensed staff has always been self sufficient and able to provide a sense of security to our families during a death far away from home. Our knowledge and excellent abilities with domestic colleagues and foreign embassies throughout the world enable us to provide complete shipping services around the globe.
