Variety of Cremation and Funeral Services

When making decisions about your loved one's burial options, you can choose between a cremation or a burial. Cremation services are quickly becoming very popular because of the lower cost and its benefits to the environment over burial. Take peace in knowing that our cremation practices are exact. Our employees sign their names to the identification of the deceased before, during, and after the cremation process, never losing track of the ashes.


Just because you have chosen cremation doesn’t mean that you don’t gather together and invite family and friends to celebrate the life of your loved one. You can have a memorial where everyone shares their memories and can get closure by celebrating the deceased one last time. If you would like to be less formal, you can throw a celebration of life at a venue outdoors or even a barbecue in your backyard.


Because not every person is the same, then every end-of-life service is not the same either. When you choose a more traditional route like a burial, then the funeral can either be traditional or non-traditional. There is no book on what a funeral should look like. The most important directions to follow are those of what the deceased would have wanted. If you didn’t get a chance to discuss that with your loved one, then think about their personality: were they always trying to stand out and be different? Or did they take solace in following tradition and being conservative in their celebrations? The most important part of funeral planning is making the service unique to the person who passed on.
