When Cremation is Preferred

People may choose cremation because they believe it to be the right choice for them. It is as deeply a personal decision as that of selecting burial. The decision could be based on

  • The Desire for Simplicity. There is nothing simpler than a direct cremation, where the body is transferred straight to the crematory and everything is done within hours of completing the necessary paperwork.
  • The Need for Flexibility. A memorial service after a direct cremation can be arranged at a time that is convenient for family members. There is no rush to put together a ceremony which many in the circle cannot attend due to time or financial constraints.
  • Financial Challenges. The cost of direct cremation with no funeral or memorial service is often ¼ that of a traditional burial. This simple fact is often all it takes for a family to make the cremation decision; however we firmly believe that there is great value in bringing family and friends together for a remembrance service – value which exceed mere cost.

If any of those reasons ring true for you and your family, then cremation may be the perfect alternative for your loved one.

Decisions You Must Make When Choosing Cremation

  • Which urn should you purchase?
  • What kind of remembrance ceremony would you like to have?
  • What will you do with the cremated remains?

You may wish to keep the remains at your home for a time, until you feel ready to let go of them, or when all family members can be present for a scattering ceremony.

Our staff members can advise you on unique ways to memorialize a loved one using the cremated remains, including, but not limited to, the creation of art glass objects. We also offer a wide selection of cremation keepsake jewelry.

Call us today to explore cremation options, and the many creative ways you can memorialize a loved one.
