Cremation Choices

Cremation Choices
The most common misconception around cremation is that it limits choices for the survivors. The truth is, like burial, cremation is only a means of final disposition. It does not limit your funeral choices, but instead opens up even more choices to survivors. Cremation itself is simply one step in the memorialization process—and what you do before and after is your decision. Many people choose to have a visitation period as well as a ceremony—simple or elaborate, traditional or contemporary—before cremation. A memorial service after cremation is also common, as is gathering together to commit the remains to their final resting place. Whatever your family’s needs, we’re here to help you create an appropriate and truly meaningful tribute to your loved one.
