Why Choose Cremation
Deciding on cremation or burial is a very personal choice and is often a difficult one to make. Over the last several years, cremation has become a much more popular choice for honoring and celebrating your loved one's passing Among the most common factors for choosing cremation are
Cost – Because cremation does not require traditional embalming, casketing and burial, cremation generally costs less than a traditional burial.
Simplicity – Often cremation services do not require as many decisions as a traditional burial. For example, since you do not have to decide on which casket to buy or where to bury your loved one, you can spend more time saying goodbye and less time planning the funeral.
Flexibility – Cremation provides flexibility in how and where your loved one spends his/her eternal rest. Whether you select a single urn or several, memorial jewelry, or scattering, your loved one will be close to you and your family.
Celebration – With the rise of cremation has come the rise of memorials that celebrate a life well-lived. Memorials that reflect or loved-one’s life provide the flexibility in honoring the deceased, which is personalized and reflects how your loved one lived.
Our licensed funeral directors provide personal service and meet with each family where they are most comfortable. Whether you come to our funeral home or we meet you at your home, our funeral directors will assist you throughout the entire arrangement process. Our goal is to make honoring your loved one as simple and as convenient to you as possible so that you can celebrate a life well-lived and begin the healing process.
