For families who explore cremation as the means of final disposition, there are important purchasing decisions to consider with cremation services. There are many options to choose from in selecting products that will make your final tribute reflect your feelings about your loved one.
Understanding Your Cremation Options
Create a meaningful tribute
Start by thinking about what type of service, tribute or gathering will be meaningful to you and your family. For those who wish to tell their loved one’s story, a personalized life commemoration with scheduled visitation time and planned ceremonial events allows family and friends to visit, share memories and show support. Or you might prefer a private farewell for close family and friends to say their goodbyes.
