SIMPLICITY FUNERAL PACKAGES

Deciding between cremation and burial options can be a difficult choice. Choosing a burial service may simply mean selecting a beautiful resting place in a cemetery and providing a place to go to remember and grieve the person we lost. Cemetery services may also may include a graveside service and memorial headstone.

The reasons for choosing a cremation are unique and varied as those selecting this option, and can be based on religious beliefs or even environmental and land usage. For many it's a simplified experience and sometimes an alternative to a traditional funeral.
