Complete Service with Cremation
Traditional visitation (with open or closed casket), and services at the funeral home or alternate location, such as a church, with the cremation following.
Visitation with Cremation
Family and friends gather to pay their respects, express their condolences and lend their support. The casket may be displayed open or closed. Cremation would take place after the visitation.
This service, gathering or memorial reception can be a simplified version of a traditional service or it may be personally designed by the family to meet their specific needs. It may be held at the funeral home, or a location of your choice. The casket is not present, but an urn may be present along with photographs and other memorabilia.
This is a service of remembrance held at the graveside or columbarium in the cemetery as the cremated remains are interred.
