The biggest misconception about cremation is that there cannot be a funeral service or a visitation. This is absolutely not the case. There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one's life: you can provide a chance for family to say goodbye through a final viewing before the cremation, you can host a public visitation for extended family and friends with a viewing, and you can also hold a formal service either before or after the cremation occurs. After the cremation, itself, there are a variety of choices for your loved one's final disposition.
Interment means the process of burying or entombing your loved one's cremated remains. This can be in the family plot, a memorial site, a cremation niche or urn garden, or in a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. Ask our staff about options for interment possibilities.
Graveside Services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.
Scattering allows you to spread your loved one's cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You can also choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for internment or another form of disposition.
Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one's final resting place in a nearby location. Keepsake urns are available in several sizes, designs and materials, as well as jewelry options.
