Cremation offers families a variety of options. From elaborate and traditional to dignified and simple, cremation is an option which allows for great flexibility in, style of service, time of service, price and preference for final resting place.
Hoff Funeral & Cremation Service offers a variety of service options and packages for cremation, including a full traditional service followed by cremation, a memorial service after cremation, and immediate cremation (without service).
Our helpful staff can assist you in selecting the service that is appropriate for your family and fits into your budget. No matter which type of service is selected, we can help you give your loved one a special, dignified, and personalized farewell.
Traditional Service with Cremation
The traditional service option is offered for religious ceremonies, celebration of life events, or anything in between. Usually a traditional service will include a viewing or visitation and ceremony at the funeral home, local church, or other venue followed by cremation. A graveside or committal service may then be held after the cremation. We also offer our families a Tribute DVD consisting of up to 60 pictures set to music. A traditional service may be elaborate or simple. Usually flowers, pictures, and memorabilia are displayed. A register book, thank you cards and memorial folders are also available.
A memorial service is one that takes place after cremation has occurred. This allows time for loved ones to gather if they live far away. A memorial service may take place weeks after the death, but it is best to do it as soon as possible to allow mourners to process their grief. A memorial service is similar to a funeral service; however, the cremated remains are usually present instead of the body. Photos, mementos, and other memorabilia may be brought in to personalize the memorial service. Register books, memorial folders, thank you cards, and a Tribute DVD are present. A graveside service following the memorial service may also be arranged.
Immediate cremation is our most basic option. As with all the other options, it covers all necessary fees and permits, the arrangement conference, transportation of the deceased to the funeral home, alternative container, and basic urn. Also included is a Tribute DVD consisting of 60 pictures set to music. Families may choose to hold private services, a scattering service, or even opt for a memorial service later if the need arises. We can offer our advice as to options available during the arrangement conference.
