Heritage Memorial - Portland Oregon
For many, the decision is primarily based on practicality and the belief that the process is simpler, less emotional, less expensive and more convenient. Choosing cremation allows families to have more control on when to hold a memorial service or gathering. With cremation, you do not have to feel the time constraints pressuring you to have a service within two or three days following the death, like you do with traditional burial. Cremation provides for flexible scheduling. Many families will then be able to plan memorial services, celebration gatherings and receptions to accommodate the schedule of the family rather than feeling that the service must be conducted within a few days following death.

This flexibility provides opportunity for family members coming from a distance to make traveling plans and have the service or gathering at a time that is most convenient for the family and all concerned.
