Cremation as an Alternative to Burial

Cremations are becoming increasingly accepted in the United States as an alternative to earth burial. Cremation rates vary dramatically across regions of the United States, at least in part because of geographic differences in religious, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Whether you are looking for traditional or cremation services, our funeral home offers different service choices. We will assist you with the details of personalizing a service that best memorialized your loved one. For more information, please call (800) 244-9585.

Death Takes its Toll

It is often said that one of the primary reasons to preplan a funeral is that doing so spares the surviving spouse and family members the burden of having to make funeral and burial arrangements under great stress. Just how much stress does a surviving spouse endure after the death of a beloved husband or wife? According to a recent medical study published in a leading cardiology journal, the risk of heart attack spikes 21 times higher than normal in the first 24 hours after the death of a close relative or friend. The average age of the study's participants was nearly 62, and the risk of heart attack jumped even among those with no previous history of heart disease.
