Cremation

Thoughts on Cremation:
Through the years, Cremation has become a popular choice of service. Unlike the years past, today, you have just as many choices with Cremation Services as you do with a Traditional Burial.

Many people do, in fact, choose to have a viewing and church service prior to cremation. Others simply choose to have a simple cremation and a Memorial Service at a later date.

Some folks choose to bury the cremains in a cemetery, while others choose to scatter or place the cremains in the many choices of urns that are available.

Ultimately the choice is YOURS and we are simply here to help you fulfill all of your final wishes and decisions.
