“Just cremate me & spread my ashes in the lake…” We hear that statement quite often as funeral directors. Cremation is nothing new – it has been around since the beginning of time. However, in recent years, cremation has grown to encompass 40 – 50% of all final disposition in Nebraska, and as much as 75% in other states. Cremation offers simplicity, and quite often, financial savings over a traditional burial service.
At Roper & Sons, we have embraced this trend. We understand that individuals and families are looking for the best options for their budget and needs. As Lincoln’s cremation expert, we have the experience and expertise to professionally provide cremation services with the integrity and dignity that our families have come to expect.
Cremation, though, needs to be more than just “cremate me and…” We know that a memorial service is an important piece of grieving for loved ones. EVERY life matters and everyone deserves to be memorialized with dignity. Our experience allows us to help provide a personalized service that celebrates the life that was lived. We treat cremation services the same way as traditional burial services. Families are provided the opportunity to share tribute videos, personalized music and service folders, luncheons, and even visitations with viewing before the cremation takes place. And if you wish to have your ashes spread the lake – your wishes will be met.
