Honoring the life of a loved one is an emotional and personal experience. When choosing cremation, you have unlimited options available for honoring your loved one in a meaningful way. A service can play a valuable role in the bereavement process when you choose cremation. It provides family and friends the opportunity to support one another and honor a loved one.
A service can take many forms, including:
- Visitation and viewing prior to cremation
- A church or chapel ceremony followed by cremation
- Cremation followed by a ceremony
When you choose cremation, a final resting place can be provided in various ways. You can select from a wide variety of beautiful urns, which may be kept in your possession, placed in a columbarium (a building that contains niche spaces), or placed in a family burial lot. Scattering gardens are also available at many cemeteries.
You may want a memento by which to remember your loved one, such as a miniature urn or keepsake jewelry. We can explain these options to you and help you reach a decision that is right for you.
