Direct Cremation: the process of treating the deceased under extreme heat and evaporation. Afterwards, the cremated remains would be returned to the family, buried or scattered, according to individual wishes.
Cremation with a Memorial Service: the cremation process is the same as listed above, but then a scheduled memorial service will be held at the funeral home or another appropriate place.
Cremation with a Viewing/Visitation: the deceased would be embalmed and prepared for viewing, have the service of choice, and then be cremated. Afterwards, the cremated remains would be returned to the family, buried or scattered, according to individual wishes.

"Funerals are not to benefit the dead, but the living. They have a number of unparalleled therapeutic benefits. As a rite of passage, the funeral assists you in recognizing the passing of your loved one, supporting you as you start your life without the deceased, and reintegrating you back into the social group as a person whose loved one is no longer alive." ~ How to Go on Living When Someone You Love Dies by Therese A. Rando, Ph.D. You can contact Richard at 215-646-0595 to share your thoughts on service plans
