The most traditional and widely known honoring event is the funeral service. Funeral services have been used to gather the surviving loved ones of the deceased to commemorate a remarkable life. Funerals are held relatively soon after the death date has occurred. This is practical since funerals usually have the body of the deceased present. Funerals may be very small or quite large events. They may have an open or closed casket visitation or wake meeting prior to the funeral service.

Memorial Services

Memorial services are very similar to funerals as they are a means of honoring, remembering, and paying homage to a departed loved one. However, the timeline of when this event takes place may vary. Sometimes memorial services are held right away or several weeks (or even months) later. If cremation has been chosen, ashes may be present at this gathering if desired by the family.

Burial Arrangements

Burial arrangements have a range of practical situations for which it may be appropriate. For example, burial may be handled very shortly after death without an honoring service attached. A memorial service may be held at a later date. Others have the body embalmed and prepared for visitation or wake services before burial. Graveside ceremonies may be most fitting for certain circumstances. Burial is not only for intact bodies; “cremains” may also be buried to be held in a place of a permanent memorial.

Cremation services

Cremation services are becoming a more common form of service chosen for end-of-life arrangements. Cremation is the means by which the physical remains are incinerated at high heat. The remaining elements (mostly bone fragments) are collected and reduced to a granular substance that is referred to as “ashes” or “cremains.” These are placed within a container (often an urn) and returned to the family for final disposition.

Cremation can be held without a public honoring service taking place. This is called direct or simple cremation. For the budget-conscious, cremation can be an excellent solution as there are fewer fees associated with this service than with traditional embalming and burial. Every cremation is performed for one individual at a time. Some critical laws and practices govern cremation services, and we comply with all of these.

Any of the above services may be combined in a variety of ways to handle each unique circumstance. This special person in your life deserves to be honored, and your loss deserves to be validated. Our staff is carefully trained and ready to support your needs and desires for funeral home and cremations in Seattle, WA, at this time of change.
