Contrary to what some people believe, Cremation does not limit choices, but, in fact, increases the choices available.
Every day, we hear stories about how people are struggling to find meaningful ceremonies to honor a loved one who has been cremated. Somehow they think that cremation means there can be no remembrance service, or commemorative event – and that’s simply not true.
A cremation ceremony or remembrance service simply sets aside time to celebrate the personality and accomplishments of someone you loved. And, it gives comfort and support to those left behind. It can take place prior to the cremation, or afterwards. It can also be part of a scattering ceremony.

Is the Time Right for You?
Perhaps you aren’t yet ready to plan such an event. And that’s okay – in fact, choosing cremation has given you the time you may need to feel ready to take this on.
Yet, we encourage you to have some cremation ceremony gathering at some time – whether now or in the future – to commemorate your loved one’s life. When you’re ready, call us at 855-858-1880 to explore your cremation ceremony or remembrance service options.
