Many families and
individuals choose cremation as an alternative to traditional burial.
The reasons vary and may be based on personal, religious or societal
Cremation is simply one way of preparing your loved one
for remembrance and memorialization. There is still a need for a
meaningful gathering to commemorate or celebrate the special life of
that loved one and to assist survivors in the grieving and healing
process. This tribute can take place before or after cremation and may
be as personalized as you wish.
Memorializing a loved one’s
cremated remains in a columbarium, cremation garden, family estate or
other designated area is also a very important part of the grieving
process. This permanent memorial location gives families, friends and
future generations a place to remember and pay tribute to that special
life. Ask your funeral arranger about the many ways you can memorialize
your loved one or plan ahead to leave your own lasting legacy.
