When making the decision of how to handle a deceased loved one’s body, cremation may be a viable option. The following decisions must be made as part of the final arrangements. Why not pre-plan your funeral and save your loved ones the trouble in their time of grief?
While so often traditional memorial services seem to be a celebration of death, a cremation funeral tends to take on more of a celebration of life aspect.
