Choosing Cremation

Choosing cremation offers several choices for service and memorialization. The following considerations will help you determine the type of event that would be most meaningful to you, your family, and friends. Do you prefer to offer friends and extended family the opportunity to say goodbye and offer their love and support with a public viewing or memorial service? Do you prefer to conduct ceremonial services at a church or place of worship? If family and friends are coming from a great distance, do you prefer to arrange for a memorial service following cremation? Whatever your preference, our staff will work one-on-one with you to create an appropriate tribute.

To help simplify the planning and arrangement process, the offerings described here represent the most popular choices of our client families who elect cremation. Each of these packages offers our Signature Service Commitment.
