A Family Owned Business With a Lot of Heart
Our small business has grown from a desire to offer alternatives to families who need dignified and affordable options for laying their loved ones to rest. We have been so grateful to have expanded to serve multiple communities because our clients have been so pleased with our offerings.
Originally established in 2001, we began by offering cremation services with the first on-site crematory in the greater Kansas City area. From there, we have filled the needs of hundreds and hundreds of families in several communities at a time when they are facing deep turmoil. We seek to make every encounter with the bereaved heartfelt and compassionate. Your special requests are genuinely our pleasure to fulfill.
Do I Have Options for Funeral Home and Cremations in Kansas City, MO?
The short answer– yes! We have several options ranging from a simple cremation to full funerals.
Our direct cremation service includes:
- The local transportation of your deceased into our care
- The securing of necessary permits and documents
- A cremation container (required by law)
- A temporary urn
- The actual cremation itself
Other options can be supported as well. For instance, we can also do a direct cremation with a brief final goodbye for a small group. Others choose to have the cremation and then follow immediately or at a later date with a memorial ceremony. Still, others find that they need to host a public viewing and then have a cremation directly thereafter.
Finally, we also serve families who wish to have a more traditional funeral service but not at the high cost of the funeral industry. You can have a beautiful service without exorbitant price tags. We absolutely support you and honor the budget you set for the ceremony.
Cremation has become a more common choice over the years. There are likely lots of reasons for this. A few we have heard are:
- The clients desire their dead to return to earth more naturally– without unnatural casketing and burial vaults that take a very long time to break down.
- The costs of traditional services are too expensive, or not a place the family wishes to utilize their resources.
- There is a desire to scatter the remains in a particular place or to keep the remains nearby. Either can be comforting to the family.
Cremation has become more acceptable in religious circles as well. However, if you have concerns about your religious practices and cremation, please talk with us about them. We want to understand and honor your traditions and beliefs and won’t seek to persuade you otherwise.
