Cremating your loved one

To remember and be remembered are natural human needs. Throughout human history, memorialization of the dead has been a key component of almost every culture.

Psychologists say that remembrance practices, from the funeral or memorial service to permanent memorialization, serve an important emotional function for survivors by helping to bring closure and allowing the healing process to begin.

Providing a permanent resting place for the deceased is a dignified treatment for a loved one’s mortal remains.

When cremation is chosen, a final, permanent resting place allows for the life to be memorialized for immediate family as well as future generations.
