Cremation has become a preferred option for many people because it offers more flexibility in planning a service and can often be less costly. You can have a traditional funeral service (with the deceased present in a casket) before a cremation. You can have a memorial service (without the deceased present) shortly after death or weeks later, with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes, or have the urn buried in a cemetery or placed in a niche. What’s important is creating an opportunity for family and friends to gather and support one another, share memories, and honor life.
