CREMATION AND A FUNERAL
Cremation, it should be noted, is not a replacement for a funeral. Cremation is a more rapid return of the human form to its base state. Your funeral and memorial options are actually increased when you opt for cremation over traditional burial.
Unlike with traditional burial, there is a practically infinite amount of time to make arrangements for the memorial of you or your loved one. The freedom provided by a cremation allows for more friends and family to attend and pay their final respects.
Final disposition of the cremated remains also provides a wealth of options, including burial, columbaria interment, land or sea scattering service, and several other interesting and unique memorial opportunities.
