“A good funeral gets the dead where they need to go, and the living where
they need to be.” - Thomas Lynch

Cremation is where the body is prepared for final disposition. Over a period of 2 to 3 hours the body is transformed by intense heat (1600 – 2000 degrees Fahrenheit) to a state of small skeletal fragments. After the cremation process is complete, the cremated remains are removed from the cremation chamber, cooled, processed, and placed in an urn. The cremated remains are now ready to be present at a ceremony, a tribute reception, graveside, or kept at home or scattered. The cremation often follows a private visitation for family and close friends or may also follow a funeral ceremony which may include a rental casket.
You are welcome to call us any time of the day, any day of the week, for immediate assistance. Or, visit our funeral home in person at your convenience.
