Cremation with Care

Cremation-With-Care funeral home providers are cremation experts. We offer the greatest measure of respect for wishes because your trust and confidence is essential. Every cremation is performed in accordance with the highest level of ethical cremation standards and procedures.

Choosing cremation rather than burial does not diminish the value of a wonderful life. Cremation, like burial...is simply the disposition of the physical body of the deceased. It does not preclude you from planning a Remembrance Gathering or creating a permanent memorial in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden that can be visited regularly by family and friends. A Remembrance Gathering honoring the wonderful life of a loved one may take place either before or after the cremation process. 

More and more people are moving toward creating colorful, personalized ways to say goodbye to loved one. Remembrance Gatherings often include playing their favorite music, serving their favorite foods and displaying photographs and other mementos that celebrate their individuality. You might even consider planning a themed Remembrance Gathering. No matter what your vision of what an ideal last hurrah might be, don't be afraid to ask your Remembrance Planner.

The remembrance of the heart, spirit and soul of your loved one is a treasure which only you and your family can truly know and cherish. We offer a diverse selection of permanent cremation urns to choose from in many different styles, themes & hobbies, as well as works of art that will be displayed & enjoyed for generations. Sharing the cremated remains with Family Keepsakes and Cremation Jewelry helps to keep your loved ones memory close to heart.

• Don’t assume that all cremation providers are the same.

Ask questions. Do they follow a code of ethics? Do they have a tracking system? How can I be sure the cremated remains you receive are those of my loved one? Avoid heartache and regret by taking the time to ask questions and learn more about the cremation process.

• Don’t make your decisions based on price alone.

We know that most families must be cost conscious, and cremation services should be priced within your means. However, making decisions based on price — and price alone — can lead to regret later on. Don’t just look at the bottom line; look for the quality you’ll receive. The decision you make needs to be based on value.

• Make sure they quote you the complete cost.

Some cremation providers may quote you a low price, but neglect to include transfer of deceased to the funeral home, professional service fees, and care of the deceased. Don’t wait to discover that not all the costs of cremation were included.

• Don’t underestimate the importance of face-to-face contact.

Be sure to schedule a face-to-face visit to meet the staff and inspect the facility. We invite you to spend some time with us exploring the Cremation with Care guarantee, our facility, and your memorialization options. We want you to take all the time you need, so that you feel more confident about your cremation decision.
