What to Know About Funeral Services and Cremation Services
Let's define a few terms and dispel a few myths around funeral and cremation services. Funeral services are generally held shortly after the passing of an individual. This is because the body is typically present at the service. If the funeral is a full-service affair, the deceased will usually be embalmed, and there will be a viewing or visitation period prior to the funeral.
Cremation services are growing in popularity, though not necessarily at a high rate. People are choosing cremation for varied reasons, which may include:
- A cost-effective alternative to casket burial
- A more natural return to the elements than a casket burial
- Environmental concerns for the limited land space for cemeteries
- A desire to scatter remains in a beloved spot
- A wish to keep the remains nearby, such as in a permanent urn
Cremation can be handled in a reasonably brief timeframe after death. There are rules about how soon a cremation can be performed owing to the permanency of the process. Plan on a week to ten days before the remains will be returned to you. This can be expedited in some cases. If your timeline is sensitive, please communicate with us, and we will see what we can do.
Cremations are handled individually and in a safe, respectful manner. We hold all applicable permits and meet all relevant laws and regulations for these services. Trust that the people we work with are committed to the privacy and dignity of these services for all who retain them.
When considering funeral home and cremations in South Coffeyville, OK, it is also good to know that it is possible to choose both. A full-service funeral, complete with embalming for a viewing and a rented casket, is an option that some prefer. After the funeral services, the remains are then transferred to the crematory for the cremation procedure.
Creating a Permanent Memorial
If a traditional burial is not chosen, it is important to plan where you will create a permanent memorial for your loved one. Grief counselors suggest this is a vital step to support the bereaved. Having a place to physically go when you wish to feel close to your loved one can be very healing.
Technology and Digital Resources
We love to support your end-of-life services with a video tribute created from your selections of photographs, graphics, memories, video clips, and music. These slideshows can be used as part of your services. They may also be kept to view at your leisure in the future. It becomes a treasured keepsake for the living loved ones and future posterity to have this recorded.
Finding Grief Support
After you complete the arrangements for your loved one’s final disposition, the onset of grieving generally sets in. This is a time that no one can tell you the exact right way to navigate. However, statistics show that those who have moral support have much better experiences moving through grief and loss.
We have abundant resources collected together to look over and find which supportive resources will serve you and your loved ones the best. It is important to us that you have a plan for your grief and appropriate resources so that you never have to feel alone.
