about cremation

Many families and individuals look at cremation as an alternative to a funeral service. However, the truth is that cremation is simply a disposition alternative to burial or entombment of the deceased family member. Just as most people would not think of having a burial without some ceremony or tribute for the deceased, so should individuals who choose cremation have the opportunity to celebrate their life and support from the community through a memorial gathering or visitation.

There are many options available to those families who choose disposition by cremation. Many families recognize the importance of a time for gathering of friends and a ceremony of tribute when a loved one dies, and these needs can be met through several of the options offered through the funeral home. Pray Funeral Home offers the families they serve the Family Affirmation Service, which is designed as an alternative to the traditional style funeral service.

This alternative is available for those families selecting cremation as final disposition as well as earth burial.

An ever increasing number of families are requesting cremation services. We have compiled a sampling of cremation services and ceremonies that we have the privilege of providing. We are always sensitive and willing to accommodate special requests as well. 

WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE CREMATED REMAINS?

You have several choices for disposition of the cremated remains.

Interment - Many families choose to inter the cremated remains on a family lot in a local cemetery.  This assures that the loved one will be commemorated or remembered with a marker or monument, similar to monuments that are erected for heroes, or famous people in our country.  And who else but a beloved parent or grandparent deserves recognition in the eyes of loving family members?

Possession - You have the option to take the cremated remains home.  Some people feel comforted holding them in the home for a time.  When the family is ready the cremated remains can be placed in a cemetery lot or columbarium niche at the appropriate time in the future.

Keepsake - Some families divide the cremated remains into separate portions for each family member to hold or have placed on their cemetery lot.  

Scattering - Cremated remains can be scattered on a special spot that has meaning in the memory of the deceased.  Local and state regulations may prohibit this is many areas.  Some religions such as the Catholic Church have strict guidelines for proper care of cremated remains that prohibit this option.
