A Memorial Event is important because it:
- acknowledges that a life has been lived
- allows survivors to remember and honor their loved one in a special way
- serves as a central gathering place for family and friends to give emotional and physical support to one another
- initiates the grieving process
- confirms the reality and finality of the death
- encourages mourners to face the pain of their loss and express their thoughts and feelings
- helps survivors to better cope with their grief and enables them to move forward with their lives

Not long ago, people thought that if they chose cremation they could not have a traditional interment or memorial service. But today’s contemporary funeral traditions offer many service choices to those who prefer cremation.
Cremation is selected for many reasons ranging from religious beliefs or ethnic customs to cost. Most families selecting cremation are believed to do so simply because of personal preference.
Cremation does not preclude a funeral with all the traditional aspects of the ceremony. Visitation or viewing with a funeral ceremony and church or memorial services are options to be considered.
Cremation creates new options, and as with any funeral arrangements can be as individual as the people involved.
After cremation many people prefer to bury the cremated remains in an urn or urn vault. Above ground entombment, permanent possession or scattering are other choices for final disposition.
