Cremation is the Right Choice

Choosing cremation does not change the available options for putting together a beautiful service. At Platt’s Funeral Home, all of the options are still available for gatherings, memorization, and final disposition if you choose cremation. Platt’s Funeral Home will personally attend to everything for you.

The cremation process uses heat to reduce human remains to its original elements. The body is delivered in a casket and then cremated. The remains are put into an urn. Cremation allows you to design a special final resting place for your loved one. The urn can be decorated. It can be personalized with a special shape, colors, etched words, and more.

Having a cremation means a traditional service can still be held. Formal or informal, either brings great closure for family and friends.

The final resting place of the urn is up to the family. The urn can be buried, put into an above-ground inurnment, taken home for permanent possession, or scattered. Last but not least, some families will use a plaque or monument to remember their cremated family member.
