The cremation process has been performed for hundreds of years, although, it was not until the 1860s that cremations began being performed in the United States. Today many choose cremation as a final disposition. Family and friends can gather around your loved one’s cremated remains to commemorate their life and honor the memories shared. This symbolic service is a beautiful step forward in the healing process and can accompany many end-of-life options.
What many people may not know is that families that choose cremation can have traditional options with a body present and cremation afterwards. This allows you to honor your loved one with a service held at the cemetery, following a vitiation at the funeral home chapel or your place of religious worship.
Cremation offers many ways to celebrate life. You can also personalize your loved one’s service to honor them, through military honors, cultural traditions, or religious leadership. No matter what your wishes for your loved one, we are here to help them come to light.
