Cremation Offers Flexibility
Aside from the affordability of cremation, it also offers families a great deal of flexibility for personalizing a ceremony, remembering a loved one, and honoring them in a fitting fashion.
Lutz Funeral Home offers a wide range of options for those wishing to be cremated, including direct cremation with no viewing, viewing and/or visitation, religious service prior to cremation, traditional funeral services with cremation afterward, and other types of services.
Lutz Funeral Home can help you create a meaningful celebration of life, with services held anywhere and any way you want. You can choose the location, day of the week, and time of day; who will officiate; what type of music will be played; which prayers will be said; and whether the services will be private or open to all who choose to come. We can also arrange to have butterflies, balloons, or doves released at the end of the service.
After cremation, some people choose to keep the cremains of their loved one in an urn on the mantel or shelf inside their homes. We offer a selection of beautiful cremation vaults and cremation urns. Others choose to permanently place the cremains in a family burial plot or columbarium.
Still other families choose to scatter the ashes of their loved ones. Cremains can be scattered somewhere meaningful, such as on land (with the landowner’s consent), from the air by plane, or at sea (generally at least three miles from the shoreline). It is even possible to send your loved one’s cremains into space.
Our professional Funeral Directors can also advise you on unique ways to memorialize your loved one using the cremated remains, including the creation of art glass objects, in which ashes are incorporated directly into hand-blown glass products.
Cremation keepsake jewelry has also become popular. This is jewelry that incorporates a small portion of the cremated remains in the piece of jewelry. It is available in a variety of forms, including pendants, rings, bracelets, necklaces and lockets.
