Memorable Gravesite Expressions
Many times the graveside portion of the Memorial Service is relatively short and very minimalistic. But there are many ways that you and your loved ones can create a more memorable way to celebrate the life of the deceased. Adding additional elements to the service is also a powerful way to create an honorable and special service that is devoted entirely to the memory of the deceased.
Every life is unique and we make sure each service reflects that.
We honor all burial policies 100%. In other words, full credit will be given for your burial policy or life insurance policy from any other funeral home and there will be absolutely no reduction of burial policy benefits when applied to services and merchandise at Elmwood Funeral Home & Memorial Park.
Before trying to coordinate purchasing cemetery lots or mausoleum crypts, call us (325-692-0655). There are many options to consider when selecting a final resting place and we can help you make an educated decision.
In our society, three basic forms of final disposition are practiced. The first is earth burial which continues to be the form of disposition chosen most often.
Cremation is also a choice. This is a process of preparing the body for final disposition whereby the body is reduced by intense heat over several hours to a few pounds of small fragments. These cremated remains are usually placed in an urn which may be buried, placed in a memorial niche, or kept in some other location. Cremated remains may also be scattered where permitted by law.
Finally, entombment in a crypt is also a choice and is one of the oldest forms of disposition. Today many cemeteries maintain crypts for entombment which may be in a mausoleum or in an outdoor garden.
The options are virtually endless. We offer a number of final disposition options for cremated remains, including customized urns, scatterings, burials and more. Many people like the idea of having their remains scattered in a special place. Families can scatter their loved one’s remains practically anywhere—on land, in the ocean or even in the air.
