Cremation offers options and simplicity over traditional burial

Cremation provides options

When you are faced with the loss of a loved one—a wife, husband, parents or a child—one of the last things you want to deal with is making a series of decisions.

Everden Rust Funeral Services & Crematorium has a simple solution that can put many of your worries to rest—cremation.

It’s an option that can remove the complications inherent with other forms of interment, such as selecting a casket, finding a burial location if no previous arrangements have been made and co-ordinating a memorial service, which in these current days filled with restrictions on the size of gatherings can provide added anxiety at the time of significant loss.

Cremation can be a much less complicated process that allows you much greater freedom in how and when you honour the memory of your loved one.

The possibilities are almost endless and can be tailored to reflect their character.

If they embraced the wonders of nature and enjoyed being outdoors, many families opt to provide a natural setting for a final resting place, be it a favourite hiking spot or stretch of water.

Everden Rust Funeral Services & Crematorium can help provide guidance on what is possible when it comes to locations.

If you prefer to keep your loved one closer to you, cremation can involve the selection of an appropriate urn that can have a special place in your home.

Those wanting an even closer connection can choose to have a unique piece of cremation jewelry.

These elegant items feature a tiny inner chamber that holds a small amount of remains that you can keep close to your heart.

They are available in sterling silver or gold, in a variety of sizes and style, including rings, bracelets and necklaces.

Cremation also provides portability.

If your future plans place you in another city, province, or even a new country, your loved one can travel with you and remove the distance of a permanent burial place.

With the dwindling supply and high cost of a burial plot, cremation is also an environmentally friendly and far less costly option.

And if you decide to have a direct cremation service that does away with a traditional memorial, cremation can be a much more straightforward process.

Everden Rust Funeral Services & Crematorium, which serves Kelowna, West Kelowna and Penticton, can present all of the cremation options and help you arrive at a decision that is right for you.
