Memorializing your loved one
Cremation does not require a funeral or memorial service. Memorial services are left up to the family’s discretion. You may choose to have a complete cremation service, which is similar to a traditional funeral service with a viewing prior to cremating and burial. Alternatively, some choose an immediate or direct cremation of the deceased.
We’re here to help you understand your options. There is no correct way to memorialize your loved one. The best way is in a way that honors the life of the deceased and their memory.
To put it simply, cremating expedites the process of reducing a body to bone fragments through the application of extreme heat. There are many ways to memorialize the deceased and lay them to rest by scattering the remains, holding a traditional burial, or personalizing memorialization with an urn, plaque, or other keepsake.
