There are many reasons why people choose cremation over a traditional burial—some feel it is more natural, some have environmental concerns, and some find financial advantages. No matter the reasons, Maceroni Funeral Home & Cremation Services offers personalized cremation services to meet the final wishes of your loved one.
Cremation is a very personal decision, and therefore can be customized to meet your loved one’s traditions, veteran status, or religious beliefs. We provide options for personalization at every stage, from the type of gathering to the memorial vessel. Choose a traditional cremation urn, respectful storage in a columbarium room, burial of the cremated remains, a grave marker for memorialization, scattering of the ashes, or entombment. We will customize the cremation and ceremony to honor the life of your loved one in a meaningful way, so your family can begin the healing process.
Funeral Service with Cremation
Even if you choose cremation for your loved one, you can still have a traditional celebration to honor his or her life. You may choose to have a funeral service followed by cremation, or cremation followed by a memorial service. With a funeral service followed by cremation, you may choose to have a viewing during which family and friends can pay their respects. With cremation followed by a memorial service, your family can gather to celebrate the life of your loved one, share photos and stories, and support one another with the cremated remains present in an urn. A funeral or memorial service not only honors the person who has passed, but it can also help the surviving family and friends find closure and comfort in community.
