Burial or cremation
A wide range of services and merchandise is available when cremation is selected. Contrary to what most people believe, cremation does not limit one’s choices. Cremation is only an option to earth burial or entombment. The choice of cremation does not necessarily eliminate a funeral service. A funeral service followed by cremation need be no different than a funeral service followed by ground burial
