The Cremation Process
In the cremation process, the container holding the body is placed in the cremation chamber. The temperature in the chamber during the cremation process is approximately 1600 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.
After approximately two to two and a half hours the organic matter of the remains is disintegrated by the intense heat. After the chamber is cooled the remaining bone fragments are carefully removed.
The bone fragments are then placed in a specially designed processor and transformed into fine particles. These particles are commonly referred to as cremated remains or "ashes." The cremated remains are then placed into an Urn, Scattering Vessel, Worthy Keepsakes and/or Cremation Jewelry of your choosing.
Another option is permanent placement in an urn garden at a memorial park or a columbarium niche, which is an above-ground structure protected by glass, marble, granite, or bronze. Scattering is a widely accepted option, which can be done over water or land. If permanent placement or scattering is the option of choice than selecting family keepsakes and keepsake jewelry will provide a lasting remembrance for loved ones to treasure.
Choosing cremation rather than burial does not diminish the value of a wonderful life. Cremation, like burial...is simply the final destination of the physical body of the deceased. The remembrance of the heart, spirit and soul is a treasure which only you and your family can truly know and honor. The goal is to help you find joy in the way you choose to celebrate and cherish the memories.
