CHOOSING TRADITIONAL BURIAL OR CREMATION
Funerals give grieving families the chance to create cherished final memories of a lost loved one. For some families, traditional burial best has been part of their legacy for generations; for others, a funeral followed by cremation may be the preferred option. With a burial, you can have a viewing with the body present, and decide whether it will be public or private. If you decide to go that way, you’ll need to make arrangements for a cemetery plot.
