There are many reasons that families choose cremation as final disposition. For some it is an ecological decision, for others it can be for religious reasons. And for those who choose not to have any visitations or funeral services prior to cremation, it can be as economical as direct burial. There are many options available regarding the types of services prior to cremation. Many people still select a visitation or viewing and a funeral service prior to cremation. You can also choose to have a memorial service, with or without the cremated remains present, following cremation. Another option to consider is what to do with the cremated remains after the memorial service. The most common practices are permanent possession, scattering and burial. As you can see, with cremation you have all of the choices you have with burial. Casey, Halwig & Hartle Funeral Home is knowledgeable in all aspects of cremation services.
