Cremation Service Choices
Depending on the wishes of your family, a cremation can occur at different periods of the memorialization process. Cremation can occur before or after services. Services can allow individuals to share grief, comfort each other, and celebrate the life of the departed.
Direct cremation means there is no public event. Some families do this when they choose to hold private memorials at home or at another specific location.
Sometimes families choose to cremate after a public visitation and service is held. This allows friends and family to say their farewells. Other times cremation can occur before a memorial service. Memorial services can be held in our funeral home, chapel, your own place of worship, or at another predetermined location.
Personalized services can be added to any traditional arrangement. Sometimes religious and environmental concerns are the reason individuals choose cremation, and other times family is fulfilling the last wishes of their loved one. Regardless of your reasoning and service arrangements, our staff will work closely with you to design a distinctive tribute and handle each cremation with utmost care.
