PLAIN FACTS ABOUT SIMPLE FUNERALS Isn’t it time we started to stress the spiritual aspects of funerals rather than the material? Many people spend more on funerals than the deceased would wish because they do not realize their options or they are afraid of “what people will think.” At Reveley Memorial Services we explain your choices, and let you know we are in agreement with your desire for simplicity. No pressure is brought upon you. Many times all arrangements can be completed at your residence. Reveley Memorial Services offers you the following possibilities: A service at the location of your choice, with or without the casket present Graveside Services in the cemetery of your choice Cremation Donation to medical science Shipping We have a selection of caskets, including a cremation receptacle, a plain pine coffin, cloth covered woods, or metals. We can travel anywhere, and serve a 100 mile radius of San Antonio at no additional fee. We believe that money lavished on funerals should be spent on your family, your church, or your favorite charity. Discuss this with your family now, while you can. Call us for pre-need planning, or any information you may need.
