Cremation | Answering Your Questions

cremationWhen you lose a loved one, the last thing you want to worry about is how to properly and respectfully care for their remains.

Our detailed cremation checklist and the high standards that are employed by all individuals who are involved in your loved one’s care all add to the quality of service and respect  you have come to expect from Mountain View Funeral Home.

Understanding Cremation

When your loved one is cremated, their remains are reduced to fragments of bone tissue through the application of high temperature and fire. We generally use the term “cremated remains” instead of “ashes”. There are several things to keep in mind if you or a loved one is considering cremation, including potential religious concerns. Specifically, if you are Christian Orthodox, Jewish, Roman Catholic or Muslim, there may be tenets of your religion that dictate how portions of the process may be completed. For example, the Catholic Church strongly prefers the physical body be present for the funeral mass and cremation be performed after the service is completed.

Making a decision on a cremation professional to provide these most personal services requires a great deal of contemplation. At Mountain View Funeral Home, feel confident that each individual’s dignity is preserved at all times and the family is treated with the utmost respect and empathy.
