At Mabrie Memorial Mortuary, one of the few independent, black family-owned funeral homes in Houston, Texas, we want you to honor your loved one in a way that allows you to look back years from now and be thankful you did the best you could to honor their life. Creating a ceremony that calls together the hearts and minds of all who loved them is a gift to everyone involved.
A complete funeral service is available with a wake the evening before the funeral or a one hour visitation prior to the service. If you choose not to have services at your loved one's church home, we offer families a beautiful setting at our mortuary in which you can come together to honor your loved one.
There are several options that can be included in the ceremony to personalize your loved one's service. As a complete service mortuary, we offer all required merchandise and communicate with all social organizations and third-party suppliers to ease the planning process during such a delicate time period.
If a burial has been selected, usually any ceremonies we design revolve around the casket being present. You can choose to follow tradition, with a viewing, and then a funeral service in a church or memorial chapel. Or you could decide to have a more relaxed service, even in your family home.
Let’s just say this: there is no ‘hard and fast’ formula for honoring your loved one when burial has been selected. We’re here to listen to your concerns, share our experience, and help you to arrive at the perfect way to gather together before your loved one's interment in the cemetery of your choice.
In Houston, TX, cremation is an option chosen by many. It's important to understand that cremation only refers to the manner in which you or your loved one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. We want you to know that this decision doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service because your need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to be cremated.
