How to Plan a Memorial Service

Family's Choice Cremation, Inc offers a simple memorial service tailored to your individual needs

cremation memorial servicesThough we are always told that death is a natural part of life, we are not always prepared when someone passes away to deal with the many decisions, arrangements and phone calls that need to be made. Planning a memorial service with cremation or burial requires many different considerations, including estate management, notifying other family and then shaping the actual service itself, all while dealing with grief. A memorial service, as opposed to the traditional funeral, can take many different forms, from a celebration of life to a far more specific and themed gathering. While a lot goes into memorial service planning, Family’s Choice Cremation Inc., can take care of any part to ensure your plans turn into a reality. In this section of our website we have made available practical information and links to useful resources like how to write an obituary or eulogy. We’ve also included tips on funeral etiquette- those essential social graces and queues that make such bereaved occasions slightly more bearable. In addition, we have provided a FAQ section that may help connect you with the exact answers you need. Whatever you or your family may need, we are confident that our affordable cremation services are right for you.
