If cremation is your choice, there are still many meaningful preferences for customizing a final tribute. Whether you choice leans toward non-ceremonial, or a blending of traditions and life celebrations, our funeral professional will help you fill that important need.
Memorial Services: Desired services or ceremonies may precede or follow the actual cremation. Prior to the cremation there may be a visitation and/or funeral ceremony with the casketed body present. Sometimes circumstances lend themselves to delay gatherings of family and friends and memorial ceremonies may be delayed to a later date.
Regardless of the order of events, creating a memorial ceremony benefits the survivors by allowing them the first step in letting go. This is their chance to share the love and respect of their loved one with family and friends. Viewing the body of the deceased can help bereaved persons the opportunity to face the reality of death and express it through mourning while supporting each other through the process, and thereby begin healing.
