You may decide that cremation is the best path. Arrington has the only on-site crematory in Jackson, making it easy to arrange a way to honor your loved one’s life without a burial.
Cremation only refers to the manner in which one has chosen to deal with the physical remains. We want you to know that this decision doesn’t limit the ways you can honor your loved one's life. We heartily suggest that you have a funeral or memorial service, because the need for such a healing experience is not lessened by the decision to be cremated. Again, the options are limited only by your imagination. We hope that you will contact us to discuss the wide variety of celebratory options open to you.
If cremation is your choice, then you'll need to make the next decision: whether the cremated remains will be placed in a mausoleum niche, buried on the cemetery grounds, scattered in a separate location by family members, or kept at home. The choice is entirely yours based on what you feel is the most proper way to honor your loved one.
We have partnered with Parting Stone to offer an alternative to traditional cremation urns.
Their technology can turn your loved one's cremains into 40-60 "stones." The appearance of each collection is 100% natural and can differ in hue and texture, making each set unique. Parting Stone provides a form of your loved one’s remains that can be touched, held, and shared.
You can choose to include Parting Stones as part of your pre-plan or at the time of arrangements.
