Trusted and Dignified
Cremation as a disposition can be, and should be, just as personal as a burial and funeral service.
Personalizing a cremation with a celebration of life can be very therapeutic. A celebration gives you and your family something to concentrate on as you relive memories. We offer many ways to personalize a service. As with burial options, cremations can be personalized. From serving your loved one’s favorite ice cream to releasing butterflies, displaying memories through photo boards or even playing a tribute video, cremations should have the same focus in mind, celebrating the unique life lived.

Some request direct cremation, eliminating “all the bother of funeral services” for family members. Funeral services and celebrations aren’t provided for the deceased; they’re there to help support and comfort the living. Direct disposal of cremated remains or scattering without a service or memorialization of any kind can cause emotional problems for survivors. With no celebration and permanent resting place, problems arise from inadequate grieving. Take time to consider family and friends.In suffering a loss, the traditional rites of passage and memorialization can be beneficial in helping individuals pass through the stages of grief. When the practice of cremation is accomplished with human dignity and recognition, it will:
- Help assuage grief
- Alleviate guilt
- Contribute to emotional stability
- Create peace of mind
Some family members are disturbed at the thought of death itself, much less cremation, which many perceive as a cold and uninvolved process. They may resist your wishes when the time comes. It’s best to address your wishes with your family now. You can put their unease to rest, and have peace of mind knowing your wishes will be carried out.
Crematories are operated by dedicated people with great respect for the deceased. Restrictions on cremation are different from state to state, even from one cemetery to the next. Depending on the final resting place you choose, requirements may include an urn, urn vault, and other items. Making your choices now can help your family down the road. In most cases, cremation satisfies federal clean air requirements.
