Cremation Options


(SERVICES AND ITEMS MAY BE ADDED OR REMOVED FROM THESE MOST POPULAR OPTIONS WHICH WILL MODIFY THE TOTAL EXPENDITURE)

As more and more people find themselves having to plan funerals for loved ones and themselves, they are making funeral choices based on values that are different than previous generations. Baby boomers see funerals as a valuable part of the grieving process and are seeking ways to make them meaningful. Today, funeral service consumers are planning funeral services that are as unique as the person who died. The idea of personalization has resulted in an explosion of unique services that reflect the hobbies, passions and interests of someone who has died. Through personalization, funeral services can be more meaningful. We offer ideas on how families can personalize their loved one's funeral and are open to family suggestions and creativity. We encourage all funeral service consumers to discuss their ideas with our staff of professionals to ensure an individualized observance fitting of the person who died.

(IN OUR LATEST RESEARCH, WE HAVE FOUND THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT ITEMS THAT PEOPLE WANT INCLUDED IN UTILIZING CREMATION WERE TO HONOR THE WISHES OR PRE ARRANGEMENTS OF A LOVED ONE, A GATHERING OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS, PERSONALIZED MUSIC, CONVENIENCE FOR FAMILY GUESTS, PHOTOS AND TO HAVE A "LIFE CELEBRATION" WITH AN UPLIFTING ATMOSPHERE)
