Expert Restorative Art at Carter Funeral Home, Denbigh Chapel in Newport News, Virginia

The memories of the events surrounding the passing of a loved one are so significant that they may permanently affect the survivor's personality. Indeed a leading cause of adult neuroses is a poorly resolved grief experience. We tend to associate the appearance of our deceased after death as evidence of their future peace. The most useful professional and difficult of the services we offer is restorative art. We take this responsibility seriously.
Beginning with the pre- embalming analysis, and extending through cosmetology dressing and casketing, we pay attention to each technique and procedure to ensure that your final memories will be of comfort to your soul as you live through the stages of grief and approach resolution.
The most personally satisfying moment of a funeral for me is when those paying their respects return from the viewing to say "She looks great! I was worried but now I feel so much better".
