When considering cremation for ourselves or a loved one, it is important to ask your funeral director in depth questions regarding what options are available for you and what suits your final disposition choices. People considering Cremation actually have the same options for services and merchandise as those who choose casket burial however, a determination needs to be reached as to where the person's final resting place will be. Most commonly today, families choose to keep the urn and cremains at home, placed in a niche, interred (buried) in a family plot or scattered amongst scenic or nostalgic landscapes conducive to our loved one's memories.
