Everyone has their own personal reasons for choosing cremation vs. burial. Cremation is an alternative to earth burial. Cremation is irreversible. A deceased person's body is placed in an appropriate container and then taken to a crematory. Visitation and religious services can follow if desired. Families may choose the type of container with which they are comfortable. We can help with planning a cremation service, as well as any other services.
Cremation services offer many options for personalization and honoring a loved one. The great thing about a cremation service is that it provides you with the flexibility to plan a service that meets your family’s needs. For instance, some families may elect to hold a traditional funeral service before the cremation or a memorial service afterwards. In both cases, the service can help your family say goodbye and respect your religious beliefs. Other families might be turned off by the thought of a traditional funeral service and instead choose to plan a more casual, celebration of life service.
Many families that choose cremation have the same services and religious rites as those that choose burial or entombment. Cremation as a choice does not prevent that. Studies have demonstrated that having time to say goodbye is healthy, and having a funeral is important to the survivors. Services can be as private as you would like. Others do not wish to view the deceased. They may choose visiting with a closed casket. Some prefer a memorial service without the body present. Many prefer some type of religious service: at the church, funeral home or cemetery. There are as many choices with planning a cremation service as with burial or entombment.
