Part of the Hammond metro area, Ponchatoula is nestled on the north shore of Lake Ponchatrain and Lake Maurepas. Some of the best fishing to be had is on Lake Ponchatrain, the largest lake in Louisiana. This small community of 5,000 is full of small-town charm. The creative environment of Ponchatoula is enriched by a multitude of artists, including musicians, artists, photographers, singers, poets, and authors. Ponchatoula is known as the “strawberry capital of the world” because, until the 1980s, the city derived most of its income from agriculture, including a bountiful spring harvest of strawberries. Visitors to the area can visit a number of antique shops, go camping, or attend the Annual Easter Bonnet Festival in April.

The majority of people in most states now choose cremation over burial. Cremation renders the remains of the deceased into a fine powder through a process that includes heat and evaporation. Cremation is often chosen for one of three primary reasons: affordability, environmental concerns, and religious reasons. Cremation can take place prior to a service, allowing the embalming and visitation stage to be skipped. This, in general, lowers costs significantly.
Many prefer cremation as a means to help protect the environment. Choosing cremation helps to preserve a variety of resources that are used in traditional burial. Cremation is also sometimes chosen for religious reasons, including by Sikhs and Buddhists, who believe that cremation frees the spirit from the body.
There are a number of service options available when a loved one is cremated, including a traditional funeral service, a memorial service, or a committal or scattering ceremony. Once cremation is complete, the cremated remains can be buried, scattered in a location that was special to the deceased, placed in a ceremonial garden, columbarium, or mausoleum, or returned to the care of family.
SimpleCremationOnline Guarantees a High Level of Service
When cremation takes place, we ensure that the funeral home staff oversees the transport of the deceased and completion of all necessary paperwork. Additionally, a staff member will witness the cremation. If so desired, it can be arranged for family members to witness the cremation as well. Cremation is always performed in a very carefully controlled process that ensures proper identification, that each cremation is done individually, and that the deceased is always treated with the utmost dignity and respect at all times.
