Viewing is often important in the grieving process because it gives an opportunity to say goodbye. Bringing a sense of closure is important and helps those family members who may be in shock, denial or have not had an opportunity to say goodbye. If you are not having a service with the body present, the viewing will be your last opportunity to physically see the person.
The basic package does not include visitation time, a ceremony or any other services and/or products. Additional cremation and transport costs may apply for individuals in excess of 300 pounds or more difficult removals. Residential removals will incur an addition charge because an addition staff person is required.

Our Traditional Cremation Pricing Package may be more desirable for some families.

Cremation Pricing Package
Many families wish to add some additional options to the basic cremation packages. There are several ways you can do a little something extra which personalizes the cremation service. Some common options are;
If a family member is planning on keeping all or a portion of the cremains, then selecting a displayable, decorative, up-scale and special urn is a option for consideration. Cremation urns are available in a huge variety of shapes and made from numerous materials. We have a large selection of cremation urns for viewing at our office.
If you are doing a short viewing or service with the deceased present, you may decide to have your own cremation casket in lue of a casket rental.
Scattering the cremains of a loved one is common and many families decide to use a biodegradable urn to facilitate this process. We have many of these Sea Burial Urns at our office and we have a great deal of experience in their proper use. On occasion the decision to use a biodegradable urn comes down to religious concerns. With Catholics considering scattering, this article from Archdiocese of Washington will address some concerns.
Additional options for all of our Cremation Packages such as keepsakes, jewelry and other tokens are available. You may purchase some of these items directly for our site or by contacting us directly, we will be happy to assist you in any way possible.
