At the beginning of the arrangement conference the funeral director will need to ask you a variety of questions. The answers to these questions will be used to complete different documents, forms and permits. Information for the obituary is usually obtained at this time. Mark's specializes in custom-written obituaries which are published in the local newspapers. If the family desires, we will also list their preferences for memorial gifts. The funeral director will discuss with the family their preferences for the funeral time, location, and other details regarding the services.
Memorialization is the process of remembering a loved one through a formal or informal ceremony. It is important that families have the freedom and opportunity to create a service that is important and meaningful for them. It is our belief that the more families and friends who participate in the memorialization process, the closer they will be to starting the road to healing.
What is Cremation?
Cremation is the process of reducing the body to bone fragments through the application of intense heat. Cremation is often considered to be an inexpensive, less complicated substitute for the "traditional " funeral. Cremation and burial are both defined as "modes of disposition", methods of caring for the body and, as such, are just one part of a funeral.
