Losing a loved one is difficult, but honoring his or her final wishes is
a symbolic way to say goodbye.
Cremation services near Hayward can help your family honor a lost loved one’s final wishes.
Your family may decide to choose cremation for a number of reasons. Cremation
can be a way to honor your loved one’s last wishes or respect certain
beliefs. This option can also be much more affordable than traditional
burial and provides a more environmentally friendly alternative. The cremation
process also creates ashes that can be shared among different family members.
No matter your reason for choosing cremation, it is important to make
sure the entire family agrees on this option.
Making Ceremony Arrangements
Hosting a ceremony or
memorial service allows family and friends to come together and honor their lost loved
one. Your family does not need to choose traditional burial in order to
host this symbolic event. There are many ceremony options to choose from
when you select cremation for your loved one. You can choose to have a
body visitation before cremation or a memorial service following cremation.
Selecting Cemetery Cremation
Do you want your deceased loved one to rest in a cemetery near other deceased
family members? Cemetery cremation allows you to choose cremation and
have the ashes placed in a container in the cemetery. You can choose from
glass front niches to display an urn and other belongings, indoor or outdoor
niches, pedestal memorials, and even cremation benches.
Keeping the Ashes
If your family prefers to keep the ashes instead of storing them in a cemetery,
you will need to decide how to store them. Urns are the traditional option,
but there are many other choices, including jewelry and other keepsakes.
You may also choose to scatter some or all of the ashes in a place that
was meaningful to your loved one.
