Why Choose Cremation?

Individuals may choose cremation for religious, cultural, philosophical, or economic reasons.

Sometimes cremation is chosen because of a perceived lack of land for burial purposes.

Cremation can provide a dignified lower-cost option.  In most cases, the choice for cremation as a final means of disposition generally costs less than a traditional funeral service.  The overall cost is based on your selection of merchandise and services, plus some fixed expenses.

But, cremation does not mean giving up time-honored traditions of gatherings of family and friends for observances to commemorate a life that has been lived.
