Ritual and Ceremony at the time of death have existed since the beginning of time. In today's world, the rituals and ceremonies of funeral service can be tailored specifically toward the individual's choice. At Slininger-Rossow Funeral Home, our mission is to guide families in a manner that helps them achieve their goals for having the type of funeral service that will be most meaningful to them. We want to be of help and comfort to the families we serve long before, during, and after the funeral.
A funeral service with viewing, visitation, funeral ceremony and earthen burial has many options that offer choices in caskets and outer burial containers.
Caskets are available in a variety of styles, colors and prices. Caskets are constructed of a variety of materials, such as steel, stainless steel, copper, bronze or wood.
Outer Burial Containers In most areas of the country, no state or local laws require you to buy an outer burial container for the casket. However, many cemeteries require such a receptacle to prevent settling of the ground at the gravesite. Either a burial vault or grave liner will satisfy these requirements.
Cremation offers many options to meet each family's needs.
What is cremation? Cremation is one of the alternatives available to dispose of the remains of a loved one following death. The process reduces the body to bone fragments through the application of intense heat over a period of two to three hours. The remaining fragments are then processed into a granular form and placed in a temporary container.
Proper disposition of cremated remains. Cremated remains may be 1) placed in an urn which is made of a variety of materials, 2) scattered in a commemorative garden, 3) placed in a niche, 4) interred at a cemetery, or 5) kept by your family.
Arrangements for funeral services, burial, or cremation may be made in advance of need. We suggest you make your wishes known by discussing them with those you love. To provide personal peace of mind, you may also want to consider prearranging those wishes with us, at Slininger-Rossow Funeral Home.
