Cremation is an option more families are choosing as part of their funeral plans. The reasons people give for choosing cremation vary. There are those who believe cremation is a less expensive funeral care alternative. Some believe it’s the “right thing to do” for the earth. Still others choose cremation when families are separated by distance.
Whatever, your reasons for choosing cremation, our staff will be by your side to explain the many options available.
Funeral Services with Cremation
Prior to cremation, your family may choose to have a visitation and a funeral service with your loved one present. Our knowledgeable staff will explain cremation caskets and cremation rental caskets for those families choosing to have a viewing followed by cremation.
Services can also take place after cremation, either at the funeral home or your church. Your family may or may not have the cremated remains placed in an urn for the memorial tribute services.
Regardless of when a service is held, having some kind of ceremony provides family and friends with the opportunity to say a final “good-bye.” This time also gives your family an opportunity to share their memories and give support to one another.
Placing the cremated remains in a permanent memorial is just as important to some families as the memorial service itself. For many, a grave or mausoleum niche is a place to visit and remember the life of their loved one. Others find a place in their home to keep the cremated remains. Choosing a place for final disposition provides your family the opportunity to visit and reflect in a permanent, identifiable location.
Whatever your wishes, our professional staff will assist your family in planning a unique, individual tribute for your loved one before or after the cremation process.
