Cremation With Remembrance
Castle Funeral Home – Fallsview Chapel can provide convenient and flexible cremation services.
Saying goodbye is certainly difficult. The details associated with an elaborate burial can become overwhelming at times. Perhaps this is not the direction for you and your loved ones. Considering final wishes, costs, and emotions, many people opt for cremation instead. Still allowing for many of the same choices as a burial, cremation is a simpler and yet equally meaningful way to say goodbye.
Final Resting Place Options
Beyond choosing the actual urn, the decision of where to place the urn is an important one. A traditional burial plot is an option. Others choose an indoor or outdoor niche or columbarium. Mausoleums and special gardens designed specifically for memorializing urns are also available.
Chapel and Graveside Services
For those who find solace in a more traditional funeral, even with cremation you can still opt to have chapel and graveside services honouring your loved one.
Everyone finds closure and copes with loss in their own way. For many, this means including viewings and visitations in the grieving process. Even with cremation this can still be a fundamental part of your tribute. Before the cremation, through viewings and even a reception, you can honour the life and spirit of your loved one.
