Cremation does offer additional time between the death and the final burial or scattering of cremated remains. But sometimes this additional time can actually prolong the grieving and create extra heartache. However, for some families, the extra time gives family members time to travel, plan services and arrange for special events.
Cremation can occur at any point in the funeral process. Some families choose to have a full funeral service with a visitation and a church service. Other families have a public or private visitation prior to cremation. They later hold a public memorial service when it is convenient for the family. Just as with our traditional funerals, at Flower Funeral Home, we work with you to create the kind of experience you would like to have.
The cost of a cremation, just like the cost of a burial, will vary greatly. Often cremation will provide a more economical choice compared with burial services, though some arrangements will cost the same or more than burial. Each service is unique and entails its own costs and considerations.
