In fact, the decision of cremation opens a variety of tribute options. After all, this is your reflection and celebration of life—hosting a sincere gathering with a cremation only opens the doors to so many different ways to customize a unique service.
For starters, a memorial with a viewing is still available after the decision of cremation is made. A casket can be rented and used in a funeral precession prior to cremation. Not only does this allow for the more traditional type of viewing, it also allows you to still participate in the cremation option. Other types of memorials that can occur are a viewing of the urn or an honorable service without a cremation urn. Nevertheless, a service with or without an urn can be held in any place, in doors or out. The possibilities are seemingly endless when it comes to cremation, because the remains are in your possession. Here is a list of some things to consider about cremation tributes: 1. A traditional religious ceremony including or excluding visitation with cremation to follow; 2. Memorial gatherings with or without the cremated remains present in a decorative urn at the place of ceremony; 3. Placement of cremated remains in a cemetery plot/mausoleum; 4. Scattering the remains in a place such as at sea/ on land or in a memorial garden; 5. Simply being able to keep your loved one’s remains in your residence. Cremation allows for an abundant ways to dispose of the remains that otherwise would not be available. Address any questions or concerns with us at anytime.
We are dedicated to listening and accommodating tailored options for you. Even with cremation, a permanent memorial can be established for generations to appreciate. This can be in the form of a planted tree, a cemetery marker or a decorative urn. Besides the many memorial options that come with the decision to cremate, the cost of cremation is far less than a traditional burial. Cremation is approximately ¼ the cost of a traditional American burial, which is why many families are opting for cremation options—regardless of ethnic background and religious preferences. Cremation is also an environmentally friendlier way to bury your loved one. With cremation, money is saved from costly caskets and plots—and is a more natural process. Because of this, over 700,000 cremations are preformed annually. Your decision of cremation will be solely based on your preferences, beliefs and the departed’s last wishes. The staff is diligently waiting to hear your ideas. Be certain that a funeral director will be able to provide information about laws and regulations about cremation for your state.
