Options for Being Laid to Rest

For many families, the decision of what to do with a loved one's remains can be difficult. There are two major options: traditional burial or cremation. The choice depends on personal preferences and beliefs about spiritual life after death.

If you are deciding between traditional burial or cremation, think about what is most important to the family. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Traditional Burial: When choosing a burial option, the body can be present at the funeral service. Close family and friends can be invited to view the body and say their final goodbyes. They are then buried in a cemetery where family and friends can visit the gravesite time after time in the coming years.
  • Cremation: Our team has a very dignified and respectful process when it comes to cremation. When you are given the ashes of your loved one, you can choose to scatter them in a place that is meaningful to your family. Or you can keep the ashes with you in an urn or keepsake jewelry. You can divide the ashes among family members. And you are not tied to a physical place that you may have to travel to visit the deceased.

Your loved one may have expressed how they wanted to be laid to rest. If they did not, invite others close to the deceased to share their input and search journals or conversations that close friends had with their loved ones over the years. You can rely on our expertise in the industry to advise on what options may be best for your family.
