The choice of cremation is an increasing option for many people serving as an alternative to traditional burial. Some religions request it, while it is others choice born out of necessity as a more economical alternative to the more costly burial. With the choice of cremation there are items to be considered. If it important that the cremation be eco-friendly, the aqua or water based cremation called Dissolution or the traditional flame based cremation may be the choice you desire. Still other remain to the time honored basic flame based cremation.
Your choice for cremation does not limit your memorialization. A service can be tailored before the cremation with or without viewing or after and can be in a format that best depicts your loved ones life. Some families choose a more structured service with straightforward and meaningful but methodical ceremony, while others choose a life driven casual gathering that depicts their loved ones passion for life with more creative methods to remember and grieve.
There are choices and ways to facilitate your loved ones wishes and requests. If it is important for you or your family to present a ceremony where friends and family can pay their last respects, a casket can be chosen and a viewing planned to help with the grief process. While on the other hand some families would rather not view their loved one in death and chose to remember them at moments in a happier time as they lived in life, in this case a Celebration of life can be planned after the cremation and have the remains at the service or interred prior to a celebration.
If your choice is cremation, the choice of keeping the remains of your loved one close or interring them at a cemetery needs to be made. Sometimes family chooses cremation but would rather scatter the cremains in a favorite place that is meaningful to the life their loved one lived.
Many choices can at times seem daunting and confusing. Our caring staff can help make sense of the options and help create a lasting and meaningful remembrance that honors and cares for the respect your loved one deserves.
