As you are talking to our staff about funeral and cremation plans in Renovo, PA, you’ll find that most decisions fall into two categories. We can help with both event planning and finalizing the person’s resting place.

determine the type of event you’d like. Then our team works tirelessly behind the scenes to finalize the event planning details.
The other category is focused on caring for the remains of the deceased. Is there a specific method or location you would like to choose for laying them to rest? Options include cremation, which allows you flexibility since cremated ashes can be placed anywhere you desire. The other option is a burial, which requires that the remains are placed in a dedicated location, such as a cemetery.
In addition to the selection of a final resting place, you’ll also need to consider specific products and services that support this service. For example, we can assist with a casket or urn purchase, transportation coordination, and more.

Most of our cremation urns do not need a sealant, but if you want to do so you may add a small bead of wood glue, caulk, or other adhesive around the edges of the urn opening. The easiest way to bring the ashes into an urn is generally to simply leave the remains in the plastic bag and set the bag in the urn. Learn More.
What not to say in funeral?
Try not to give comments that minimize the loss, such as "It's probably for the best, because he was suffering too much," or "I've been in your shoes myself." These will not provide comfort to the bereaved. Wait for the family to discuss the cause of death. Do not bring it up yourself. Learn More.
