Cremation has gained popularity in this country recently, but it has a long history. The process itself remains basically unchanged. Our immediate cremation service can be arranged for immediate disposition of the physical remains, and it is usually followed by a memorial service in honor of the loved one held in our funeral home, a church or at another location of the family’s choosing.
We also have a direct cremation plan that excludes any visitation, funeral or memorial service. It includes the removal of your deceased from the place where the death took place and his or her transfer into our care.
Another option that we offer is the complete cremation service. With this package, you receive a viewing service that can be either a private family affair or open to the public. Following the viewing, we arrange a funeral service at a church or at our serene funeral home in which your loved one is presented in a cremation casket or a rental casket. After the funeral, we transfer your loved one to the crematorium for the cremation process.
We have a wide selection of urns available in various designs and prices. We would be honored to assist you in choosing the one that is most appropriate for your departed. You may choose to keep it in a special place in your home, put it in a columbarium niche, inter it in your family plot or scatter the ashes over land or sea. Some families choose a more unique form of final disposition such as utilizing an artificial reef ball or sending the cremated remains into space.
We provide premium services in terms of interment. We arrange for the earth or above ground burial of your loved one’s casketed remains. We also provide graveside services where you and your guests gather at the burial site for a dignified and respectful ceremony honoring the deceased.
