In addition, you can rest assured that our crematory is located in our facility.

Several choices should be considered when a family desires cremation; these choices determine the type of service it will be:
- The gathering - where family and friends come together either at one of our locations, church or another setting.
- Time of cremation - will cremation occur before or after the service?
- Memorialization - what will the final disposition of the cremated remains be? Interment or entombment, placement in a memorial garden, scattering, permanent possession or a combination.

Many families choose a non-traditional, humanistic service. This is an alternative to a religious service and focuses on the life your loved one. We employ a certified funeral celebrant who meets with the family to discuss eulogies, readings, music, poems, and other features that can be incorporated into the service to make it a meaningful celebration of life. After the service, the family receives a presentation keepsake binder containing the order of service, eulogy , and other readings.
Many humanistic services incorporate items from our remembrance service selections.
There are many different types of Green Burial options. Click here for a Green Ideas brochure with more information.
