Cremation with Care

Some request direct cremation, eliminating “all the bother of funeral services” for family members. Funeral services and celebrations aren’t provided for the deceased; they’re there to help support and comfort the living. Direct disposal of cremated remains or scattering without a service or memorialization of any kind can cause emotional problems for survivors. With no celebration and permanent resting place, problems arise from inadequate grieving. Take time to consider family and friends. In suffering a loss, the traditional rites of passage and memorialization can be beneficial in helping individuals pass through the stages of grief. When the practice of cremation is accomplished with human dignity and recognition, it will:

  • help assuage grief
  • alleviate guilt
  • contribute to emotional stability
  • create peace of mind

Understanding Cremation Options

Cremation with a Memorial Service: Cremation will take place immediately and a memorial service will take place at a church or the funeral home.

Direct Cremation with No Service: Cremation will take place immediately without having any formal services.

Some family members are disturbed at the thought of death itself, much less cremation, which many perceive as a cold and uninvolved process. They may resist your wishes when the time comes. It’s best to address your wishes with your family now. You can put their unease to rest, and have peace of mind knowing your wishes will be carried out.

Crematories are operated by dedicated people with great respect for the deceased. Restrictions on cremation are different from state to state, even from one cemetery to the next. Depending on the final resting place you choose, requirements may include an urn, urn vault, and other items. Making your choices now can help your family down the road. In most cases, cremation satisfies federal clean air requirements.
