Can I have a visitation and viewing if I choose cremation?

The ways that individuals choose to plan their funeral have changed so much in recent years. People often have questions about cremation.  You can choose to have a visitation with a viewing, followed by a traditional funeral service, and then be cremated. At our funeral home nearly half of the families who choose cremation choose this option. People often see the value of having a viewing and getting that chance to say their good-byes.

     The other option, of course, is to have a cremation first, followed by a memorial service. In either case most people still choose to have their cremated body buried in a cemetery. This allows family members to have a place to pay their respects. At Hoff Funeral Homes we operate our own crematory; this insures families that your loved one never leaves our care. With all of the options available to people today, we strongly advise people to pre-plan their funerals to insure that their wishes will be carried out.
