Many psychologists feel that a funeral service or memorial ceremony is helpful to family members and friends who are working through the grief process.

During the arrangement conference, you’ll decide whether you want the service to take place before or after the body has been cremated. When the service takes place before the cremation, it is the same as a traditional funeral, with the casket present.

When the service takes place after the cremation, it is referred to as a “memorial service”. Generally, the urn containing the cremated remains will be on display during the memorial service.

A service also can be held at the “graveside” in a cemetery before the cremated garden or placed in an above ground columbarium, also known as a “niche”.

Another alternative is to hold a “scattering” ceremony. Cremated remains can be scattered in a cremation garden, at sea, or even from an aircraft. Since there may be some legal restrictions regarding scattering in your area, we will advice you accordingly.

Cremations start as low as $1,125 plus transportation. Pre-Registration Discount available. Please call for additional info.
