People choose cremation as an alternative to traditional burial. The reasons vary and may be based on personal and religious beliefs..
Cremation is simply one way of preparing your loved one for remembrance and memorialization.
There is still a need for a meaningful gathering to celebrate the life of that loved one and to assist the survivors in the grieving and healing process. This tribute may take place before or after cremation and may be as personalized as you wish. It may take place in a church, funeral home or cemetery. But where will your loved one's - or your own - cremated remains end up in ten or fifty years from now if no final resting place is chosen - a closet? An attic? Lost? It happens!
