Trusted and dignified
Cremation as a disposition can be, and should be, just as personal as a burial and funeral service. Let us guide you through our trusted and dignified cremation options that can be personalized to truly celebrate a life lived.
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 balloons, displaying memories through photo boards or even playing a tribute video, cremations should have the same focus in mind, celebrating the unique life lived.

Cremation with Care
Some request immediate cremation, eliminating “all the bother of funeral services” for family members. Funeral services and celebrations aren’t provided for the deceased; they are there to help support and comfort the living. Storage 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 sometimes 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 ease grief
- satisfying tribute
- contribute to healing
- create peace of mind
Understanding Cremation Options
Cremation procedures vary based on the state, service provider, and selected services. Cremation may occur at a facility close to the place of death, or the deceased may be transported to a crematorium in another county or state. Immediate family members and those close to the deceased may witness the cremation process in our comfortable family room settings. A choice of cremation containers is available, ranging from a simple cardboard box to a combustible hardwood casket. We also offer a wide choice of urns and keepsakes for purchase. Alternatively, family members may provide their own suitable container for the remains depending on their final plans for placement. Following cremation, remains may be buried, kept in an urn, scattered, or placed in a unique memorial site. Please ask us more about these unique options available.
