When planning a funeral or celebration of life, there are many things to keep in mind to make fond lasting memories. This can be overwhelming for a family dealing with grief, which is why funeral homes in Seattle, WA stand ready to support you in this difficult time and provide the professional experience you need for the perfect memorial. When you work with Columbia Funeral Home & Crematory, here are some of the benefits you’ll get.
A business is only as good as the people running it, and the point of entry for our business is our experienced funeral director. A funeral director’s dual responsibility is to provide comfort and compassion in a difficult time while also serving as a professional who knows the ins and outs of funeral planning. Our funeral director is backed up by a skilled team of technicians who prepare the body and run our crematory, ensuring your loved one is treated with the utmost respect.
Whether you choose burial or cremation, we believe your loved one’s final resting place should reflect the love you had for them. We offer a wide line of classic caskets coming in a variety of styles, and they serve as an ideal centerpiece for a dignified memorial. For those who choose cremation, we offer a catalog of artistic urns that can be inscribed for a personal touch and are ideal for a permanent place on your mantle.
Flexibility and a Personal Touch
Every life is unique, and we believe a funeral or memorial service should reflect that individuality. We’re happy to work with clients to develop personalized tributes that decorate the chapel, ranging from things as small as crafts made by the departed to as large as beloved motorcycles. For those who choose cremation, we can divide the ashes as the family desires, placing them in jewelry or vials for distribution among the loved ones.
At our funeral homes, we work with clients who have unique needs and want to customize their funerals. Our multilingual staff is ready to work with a diverse local base and incorporate cultural traditions into memorial services, and we’re a popular choice for those who want to bring their own effects to the memorial process.
Our staff is also well-versed in working with the military, and we can arrange military funerals that accommodate the standard and enhanced military details. We’ll obtain the military-issued headstone and burial flag without you having to deal with government red tape.
Many clients who choose cremation are looking for a carbon-neutral option, and our Aquamation option is just as effective without the burning process. It uses an alkaline solution to reduce the body to bone ash without the powerful cremator. We also offer a line of green urns and caskets for those who want to lay a loved one to rest without impacting the environment.
