Choosing Service Styles Around Funeral Home and Cremations in Westphalia, MO


As you learn more about the kinds of services that can be held to honor your departed loved one, you will start to see what makes the most sense for your situation. The right service style is the one that will best support you and your family in completing this tender, final farewell. Of course, these events can be as customized as you wish.


Funeral services are a beautiful way to honor your loved ones and remember the life they have lived. Funerals provide a place for loved ones and friends to come together in support and love. A full service most often includes a funeral wake (viewing) to allow the family to receive sympathies and condolences. This creates an opportunity for paying final respects to the deceased and sharing grief and heartache as well as memories of better times. The funeral service is widely heralded by grief counselors as an important tool for healing.


Once the services are completed, the remains will need to be handled for final disposition. Burial often follows funeral services but is not the only option. Some people choose to have cremation services take place after a full funeral service. A complete cremation includes both the funeral home and cremations in Westphalia, MO, for the same person.


For families working with Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home, the on-site crematory offers many benefits. To begin with, working with one provider for all services simplifies the transportation and coordination that will be taking place for your loved one. In addition, having one place that handles everything can bring an added measure of security and peace of mind.


Cremation is the process that uses high heat and flames to reduce the human remains to a small collection of bone fragments. After incineration, the pieces will be processed further to be uniform in size. These granular bone fragments are what will be returned to the closest family member for final disposition options.
