Compassionate cremation

Compassionate cremation

Pray Funeral Home's focus for cremation families is the same as any family.  Our concern is for the family's well being as well as the care of the deceased. That is why we include our Maximum Living Aftercare and Attended Cremation for the peace of mind and healing for every family.  

Many families look at cremation as an alternative to a funeral service. The truth is that cremation is simply a disposition alternative to burial or entombment. 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 receive support from the community through a memorial gathering or visitation.There are many options available to those families who choose disposition by cremation. It is important for family and friends to gather for a Ceremony of tribute.  Pray Funeral Home has several service options including our exclusive Family Affirmation Service, which is an alternative to the traditional style funeral or life celebration.

Attended Cremation

Pray Funeral Home knows that families want to be assured that cremation services are carried out in the most dignified manner.  That is why our cremation services packages all include the service of one of our trusted staff members  accompanying your loved one to the crematory and witnesses the entire cremation process and returns to the funeral home with the cremated remains the same day. Your deceased family  member never leaves our care 

Pray Funeral Home also offers the opportunity for family members to accompany their deceased family member to the crematory in the same way that family members accompany the deceased to a cemetery in a traditional funeral.  

WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE CREMATED REMAINS?

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. 

Burial Under The Sea

Burial Under The Sea

One option that is gaining popularity is having a person's cremated remains cast into a reef ball.  A reef ball is a concrete dome cast with holes in the sides and sunk in designated areas in the ocean in the coastal waters of the United States.   This enables a person's cremated remains to encourage growth of natural reef habitat for marine life.  The placement is marked by GPS coordinates that are shared with the surviving family members.  

A reef ball can either be cast with a single person's cremated remains incorporated into one structure, or a person's cremated remains can be cast into a "community" reef ball along with several other individuals.  In either case a bronze plate is cast into the reef ball with the individual's name and dates engraved upon it.
