Consider ohese <Ohoughis by Debbie J. Thompson Owner/Funeral Director/CPC Fire and Earth The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) reports that, beginning in 2015, the rate of cremation in the United States surpassed that of burial. Although many families have chosen to move away from the traditional practice of burial, earth burial is still regarded as the most ancient means of disposing of the dead. Tracing burial practices back to the time of the Neanderthals reveals evidence of formalized burial procedures that involved burying bodies with tools and other artifacts that would help them in the world beyond. These bodies were also buried in an east-west orientation so that the head of the deceased always faced east. Then, as today, families select whichever method of body disposition provides the greatest assurance and comfort. A funeral is an experience of value and when properly planned can provide lasting satisfaction and comfort to survivors. Our funeral service family can assist you in planning and coordinating all of the details and will explain all of the available options. To learn about our funeral services, please call us today.
