Cremation Committal Service
Wappner Cremation Center provides an opportunity for a family and guests to gather together and say good-bye to their loved one before the cremation takes place. This can be informally with family or it can be an organized service with guests. This service is known as a Cremation Committal Service, where prayers, poems, eulogies and stories can be told. This is the same as a committal service for burial except cremation follows. Some families choose a Cremation Committal followed by Witnessing of the cremation.
Wappner Cremation Center provides an opportunity for family and invited guests to witness or view the beginning of the cremation. This occurs in a very peaceful, intimate and comfortable area called our cremation viewing room. The family can also participate by initiating the cremation of their loved one themselves. This can be a benefit to some family members who believe it helps add closure to the death.
