Today, many people choose cremation for its simplicity, affordability, and environmental concerns. It is important to remember that cremation is not a funeral, it is a means of disposition. Cremated remains should be cared for with the same dignity as a body buried in a casket. We want you to know that this decision doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one’s life. We 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.
The options are limited only by your imagination. Whether or not your family wants to include a traditional casket viewing, our Funeral Directors can incorporate many customizable memorial service ideas. Here are a few ways to create a service that allows families to support one another and celebrate a life well lived.
