At Johnston & Williams, we blend the elements of a traditional funeral with the modern trend of cremation, helping your family move through the early days of the grief process in a way that we ultimately hope will be beneficial for you in the long run.
There are no shortcuts to grief and we take the time to educate your family on why and how certain elements of the traditional funeral can be used with cremation to facilitate a healing experience. Traditional elements can be utilized, even if your loved one is to be cremated, including providing an opportunity for your family and the community to say goodbye by holding a viewing/visitation; going the distance with our loved ones to their place of rest through the funeral procession, selecting pallbearers to carry the funeral ark and ultimately seeing things through as a family to the very end by placing and covering the urn in a cemetery.
All of these elements are important but we will never push or "hard-sell" you on utilizing them if your family doesn't wish to do so. We simply endeavor to give you our absolute best guidance so you can make an educated decision.
