Cremation offers many different options in services, selections, personalization, memorialization and final placement of the cremated remains. In fact, there are actually more considerations involved in cremation than there are for burial. However, these considerations need not be overwhelming and your funeral professional can help you understand the choices.
Few things help in the healing process more than a meaningful ceremony that commemorates all that made a loved one special. You may desire a funeral or memorial service at the funeral home or a place of worship before or after cremation. A service at the graveside, columbarium niche, or site of scattering is also an option after cremation.
Special music, shared memories, photo boards and a memory table all add meaning and personalization to the ceremony.
Family and friends generally want to come together to remember and commemorate the life of a loved one, and these gatherings can range from informal to a traditional visitation with a viewing at the funeral home prior to cremation. In many cases, a memory table is set up with pictures and mementos of your loved one, highlighting treasured thoughts and memories.
If you do choose to have a viewing, you will need to select a casket or container. We can provide you with various options.
Perhaps the most fundamental and personal decision when choosing cremation is the final disposition or resting place of the cremated remains.
