Cremation

Cremation services are an alternative option to burial services. 

 

Cremation ceremonies offer an opportunity for families and friends to celebrate a loved one’s life lived, share in grief and come together for support.  This can take place before or after the cremation process.

 

Any ceremony may be made as unique as the life of your loved one. Some example of ceremonies families have with cremation are or may include traditional services or a personalized celebration, for example:

Families may gather at the crematory

They may hold private or public visitation

We are here to guide you through all options available and to attend to each family’s specific needs to help memorialize your loved one’s life with compassion and care. We want to help our families create a memorable, meaningful ceremony in which to say goodbye. A ceremony celebrating the uniqueness of your loved one, respecting personal, spiritual and religious beliefs. Celebration of life allows families to begin the grieving process. 

 

There are also variety of options for your loved one’s final disposition of cremated remains.
