Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

"The facility was very spacious and accommodating, despite the limited pictures which did not exactly convey this. Julie and the team are perfectionists. I had very specific needs and tight time constraints and thru repeated attempts and follow up with the nurses, doctors, city officials and others got the permits needed to do the cremation on the day needed and before the time to avoid to adhere to Asian Tradition for a peaceful transition and good luck. I am very appreciative of the service that I am willing to provide my mobile number, 619-618-8210, as a reference, for Exceptional Service. My first of such."
