Cremation is simply the process of reducing the human body to bone fragments using intense heat. What services are performed before or after the cremation, if any, are up to you. You or your loved one can be memorialized in many different ways.
Lutz Funeral Home will work with you to schedule services that work best for the majority of your family and friends. You could opt to have a funeral service, memorial service or celebration of life before, during, or after the cremation. With direct cremation, no formal service is required at all.
Placement of Cremated Remains
Cremation affords families a great amount of flexibility. Cremains can be kept in a cremation urn, disbursed among family and friends, scattered somewhere meaningful, or permanently placed in a family burial plot or columbarium.
Cremains may be scattered on private property as long as you have the landowner’s consent. In general, all scatterings in the ocean must occur at least three miles from the shoreline.
You also have the option of inserting the cremains into a keepsake necklace or other personalized remembrance items or even have them blown into a unique piece of glass artwork. Whether you want something simple or elaborate, we will assist you with everything you need to properly honor your loved one.
