what is Cremation?
Part of making plans for after death, whether for yourself or a loved one, is determining how the person will be put to rest. One such option is cremation – the process by which the enclosed deceased is placed in a cremation chamber where, through heat and evaporation, the body is reduced to its basic elements. These elements are referred to as “cremated remains.” The remains are not ashes, but bone fragments. After preparation, these elements are placed in a temporary container that is suitable for transport. The cremains are often placed in an urn that can be customized to embody the person who has passed away, and then put to rest in a place where family members and friends can visit and reflect on the person’s life.
Cremation is not the final disposition, but serves as the preparation for “memorialization.” An integral part of our recovery from loss is the need to see and know that our loved ones are in a place where we can return to remember and honor their memory. That’s why many of us display pictures in our homes of loved ones that have passed away. Cremated remains can be put to rest above-ground in a mausoleum or interred below-ground. At Princeton Memorial Park, our family is here for yours during this difficult time, and will ensure that all of your needs and wishes are met.
