Black’s Funeral Homes
offer many packages to celebrate a loved one’s life. Many believe that
choosing cremation means that a family cannot pay tribute to its departed.
Actually, the opposite is true: cremation allows for more options in terms of
commemoration and final disposition. You can hold a memorial gathering at any
time after the cremation at the location of your choice, with staff there to
provide their services. You can have a traditional visitation and funeral
precede the cremation process. In addition to the packages which were created
by the funeral directors to include the most frequently requested services and
items, a package can be made to suit your needs and finances. There is also a
direct cremation service available that comes without any viewing or ceremony.
To send your loved one’s
cremains to their final resting place, you can choose to scatter the cremated
remains on land, over water, in a memorial garden or any other meaningful
location. You may also hold a graveside service, assembling friends and family
to pay tribute to your loved one and witness the burying of their cremains. The
cremated remains may be buried in a family plot, memorial site, cremation
niche, urn garden or a variety of other indoor and outdoor locations. You can
divide your loved one’s cremains into multiple urns and give them to family
living in dispersed areas.
Black’s Funeral Homes also
offer several burial packages, and can build one specifically tailored to your
needs and budget. The pre-set packages range in services, with two including a
viewing and a funeral service and one offering graveside services. Memorial
merchandise comes standard with all three. Prices will be reduced if the casket
is purchased from the funeral home.
