In recent years, an increasing number of people have chosen cremation as a means of final disposition. The reasons for this vary. Some people have particular religious or environmental reasons. Others feel that cremation is less complicated. Whatever the reason for your choice, please know that by choosing cremation you are by no means limiting the service options available to you.
Most families who choose cremation also choose to have a service. Funeral and Memorial Services both honor the memory of the deceased and provide a means through which the bereaved may find support and comfort. Cremation may take place before the service so that the cremated remains may be present, or after the service so that the body may be present. Some people opt to have a service with neither present. These choices are personal and are entirely up to you and your family.
When you trust your loved one to the care of the Russell & Pica Funeral Homes, we guarantee that you will receive a complete general price list and will discuss the various types of services that are available. It is our intention to provide each family with the highest quality of professional service and facilities.
