Funeral Etiquette

Let us guide you through the ins and outs of your funeral experience.

Attending a service at Wiederspahn-Radomsky Chapel of the Chimes


  • Watch over children to ensure their safety.
  • Follow our ushers for directions.
  • Respect funeral home visiting hours.
  • Be respectful by keeping quiet around visitors who wish to reflect.


  • Stay longer than you want to. It’s all about what you’re comfortable doing, don’t feel that you need to linger if you’ve celebrated your loved one in a way that feels right to you.
  • Be afraid to laugh and share happy memories and stories. Laughter and telling happy stories can be the best medicine on the road to healing.
  • Feel that you need to look at the deceased. If this is something you’re not comfortable doing, there is no need to do so. A service is about your comfort level and your desire to celebrate the person in a way most meaningful to you.
  • Let your children be too loud and disturb others. As always, respect others and practice awareness.
  • Leave your cell phone ringer on. No one needs that additional noise when they’re trying to reflect.
  • Be afraid to make a mistake or do something wrong. You are doing something right just by coming and caring.
  • DO NOT bring in any food or drink into the funeral home. There is a water fountain in the hallway if needed.
  • Absolutely NO PETS. For the consideration of the family and others attending the service that may be allergic, we cannot allow pets in the building, even emotional support animals.            (Only AKC trained handicap service dogs will be allowed into the building)
