Cremation does not take the place of customary funeral ceremonies; it is merely another form of final disposition.
Most people who choose cremation still want to have some sort of ceremony or final tribute. Funeral ceremonies are the way we, the living share our grief, acknowledge the contribution the deceased had made in our lives, and prepare ourselves for going on with our lives.

Life Memory Video
Special photographs, provided by your family are assembled in a video (DVD) that vividly recalls memories to family and friends. The video is enhanced by pleasing background music lasting about three minutes and can be shown at a specific point during the ceremony. It can be viewed on our large flat screen in our chapel, at your church or at home. We can produce these videos in less than 24 hours.
Using a photograph provided by your family, our technicians create a simulated fine oil painting. Available in many sizes, these protraits are displayed during the ceremony and later kept by the family as a lifetime keepsake.
