Funeral Planning Options

When someone dies, those left behind must make important decisions in a short period of time. First and foremost, a decision needs to be made on how to handle the deceased’s body.

Whether to choose burial, cremation, entombment or donation is the initial decision and then additional selections will need to be made to determine how to memorialize the deceased.

These decisions can seem daunting to say the least—especially in the time of grief.

To help get you started, we have supplied information below regarding disposition & memorialization options as well as preplanning guidelines.
