Benefits of Preplanning Cremation Services
Greenlawn Funeral Home strongly encourages families to preplan for a cremation. Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Preplanning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. When you plan ahead, you will have greater peace of mind, and your family will not be forced to make emotionally difficult decisions while still grieving your passing.
Cremation gives you all the options of a traditional funeral, and more
Choosing cremation at Greenlawn Funeral Home actually gives you more options, not less. You can still have a traditional visitation and funeral with the body present. For family members and friends, these services give them an opportunity to emotionally process the reality of the death and say goodbye, both of which are very important to the grief journey. If a traditional funeral is not your preference, you can have a memorial (where the body is not present) either before or after the cremation. This gives you more flexibility to plan the perfect tribute for your loved one. In addition to the funeral and memorial options, you also have more options for a final resting place. You may opt to keep your loved one’s ashes, or scatter them some place meaningful.
