Memorial Services

The biggest misconception about cremation is that there can’t be a funeral service or visitation. This is absolutely not the case—when you choose to care for the physical remains through cremation, we encourage you to consider holding a memorial service as well. There are many options open to you when it comes to honoring your loved one’s life: you can provide a chance for friends and family to say goodbye through a final viewing before the cremation, and you can also hold a formal service either before or after the cremation occurs.

 

  • Direct Cremation with no services
  • Cremation with a Memorial Service to follow
  • Cremation with a Memorial Gathering and a Memorial Service to follow
  • Full Funeral Service with a visitation and funeral, with cremation to follow

 

 

After the cremation itself, there are a variety of choices for your loved one’s final disposition:

 

  • Graveside or Committal Services are similar to those celebrated alongside a traditional ground burial, in which loved ones are present at the burial of the cremated remains and honor the deceased through memorial prayers or other meaningful tributes.

  • Scattering allows you to spread your loved one’s cremated remains in a memorial garden, a cemetery, over water, or across any other meaningful site. You can also choose to scatter some of the cremated remains and retain the rest in an urn for interment or another form of disposition.

  • Placing cremated remains in multiple urns allows family members who are separated by distance to each feel the comfort of having their loved one’s final resting place in a nearby location.
