While everyone may have different wishes for the types of ceremonies or memorials that are used to honor their memory, many people choose traditional burial options. This type of option is the most common way that individuals are honored and laid to rest.
Traditional burial involves preparing a body for any final viewings or services which will be held. The body is preserved and then taken to the cemetery to be laid to rest. In order to make sure that a loved one’s wishes are honored, many people choose traditional burial.

Choosing Cremation to Honor a Loved One
While burial has been the traditional method that many people choose when it comes to their final arrangements, cremation is also an option. The cremation alternative may be chosen due to personal reasons or spiritual beliefs.
When a person is cremated, the process is completed and the loved ones of the individual choose what ceremonies will be used to honor the departed. A person’s ashes may be placed at a location of their choosing or of the loved one’s choosing.
