"Life’s too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.” - Dr. Seuss

Most airlines allow cremated remains on board as carry-on or checked baggage, but the container holding the remains must pass through the x-ray machine or it will not be allowed through security. Cremated remains can also be air-shipped as cargo but only by "known shippers." In addition, to transport remains on an airplane you must provide a death or cremation certificate for the cremated remains in order to carry them on board.

We believe that the men and women who have served in the Armed Forces deserve special consideration.

Always be conscious of state and federal laws when scattering, and be sure to check with the location first. Cremation is an ancient tradition, dating back at least 20,000 years. Scattering cremated remains is a wonderful and time honored way to lay your loved ones to rest. Do you have any interesting places you’d want to be scattered?

Although not all veterans grieve in the same way, sometimes the unique conflict situation veterans face and their inability to take time off to grieve the loss of a fellow service member, frequently brings on specific instances of survivor guilt and traumatic grief. Survivor guilt can be very intense for veterans, in fact it is most common among veterans diagnosed with Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Traumatic grief occurs when a loss is sudden, violent, and/or completely unexpected. This kind of grieving can also extend into physical pain, mental anxiety, and stress disorders. There are numerous resources available from family, friends, and organizations who stand ready to offer assistance. To learn more about veteran offerings, contact us at your convenience.

As pictured, all eligible Veterans receive an American Flag as a part of their burial benefits.

This is a good question to ask. We like to be upfront about embalming. Embalming is not required by law, except in a few special circumstances. In nearly all cases, you do not have to embalm. Contact us if you have specific questions about this or other topics. We are always striving for honest and open communication on all things funeral related.

“Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.” - Earl Grollman
What emotions do you feel from your grief? Don’t let anyone lead you to think that there is a timeline or any organization to grief. Sometimes grief feels like fear, other times like anxiety, many times sadness, and even it feels like bittersweet moments in the present.

Taking the time to remember a loved one who has passed with family and close friends is a great way to share fond memories. It can also help you to express complex feelings with people who truly understand.

Is Cremation the right choice for you? Consider these when making a decision:
1) Cremation opens up more options, not less. When you choose cremation, you can still choose service and celebration of life options. You get to decide how cremated remains are dispersed: scattering, urn placement, burial and more.
2) Cremation is a permanent decision. It’s best to think through this decision, and be sure it discuss it with your loved ones.
3) Some religions and denominations have different views on cremation as a final disposition. If a religious funeral is a priority for you, make sure you know your religion’s stance on cremation.
4) Cremation is still a relatively new choice and therefore concerns arise regarding respect of the body and respect for cremated remains. It’s important to note that only the highest standards exist for cremation, just like burial.

We believe cremation can and should be an experience. Saying goodbye to a loved one is necessary regardless of what you choose for the body’s final resting place. The grieving process starts at a funeral, celebration of life, or gathering of some sort. In planning for your own funeral, or at the time of need for a loved one, consider creating an experience for friends, families, colleagues, and neighbors to say goodbye and begin the grieving process. If you would like us to contact you to answer any questions regarding a celebration of life, let us know if you prefer communication by phone or email: http://204078.celebrate-life.us/reach-out/

In the funeral profession, a celebrant is a non-clergy professional that conducts formal memorials or celebration of life services. They are dedicated to conduct meaningful services that honor and remember a life lived. They can do so without linking to religious affiliation or beliefs, or include the deceased beliefs as requested. The message of their service includes unique sharing of how the deceased lived their life, their personality and values, and even memories from family and friends. Not only do they perform the funeral service, they actually plan and oversee all funeral proceedings. A funeral celebrant is there to help you decide on any and all details as you are arranging the funeral.

...A beautiful and personal way to honor their memory. The painting could be of whatever you desire, and completely unique. What are some ideas you have for memorializing a loved one?

We take great care in answering this common question. Just like adults, children’s grieving journeys can begin at a funeral. So the short answer is yes. The long answer: We think it’s best that you share with your children as much as possible in preparation of what they will experience. Explain to them that there will be people there that are sad, and even crying. Be sure to let them ask as many questions as they can in advance. For babies, toddlers and very young children, it is up to you if you think they can participate in a visitation, funeral, celebration of life, or gathering.
