Research conducted by a respected grief counselor, Dr. Bill Hoy, has shown that the grieving process is more fully completed with a service, and Pines Funeral & Cremation encourages a memorial service as a special tribute after a cremation. The service can be directed and conducted according to the needs and personalities of each family. Services range from large memorials to small, private, more intimate gatherings.
While encouraged, Pines Funeral & Cremation does not require a service. It is simply a recommendation in order to offer closure for the family and an opportunity to begin the healing process.
The staff is always dressed in a professional manner. Their behavior, body language, and outward expressions are always of the most deferential nature to respect the passing of your loved one. Transfers from the site of death are arranged through a secure and specialized vehicle. The vehicle possesses special modifications to ease any transfer, and it is properly secured at all times.
Before cremation, a positive identification is required to proceed. This can be performed from your home through our secure Posi-ID Portal on this website. A family member is required to make the positive identification, and once positive identification has been made, Pines staff will report for the initiation of the cremation process.
Although it is a difficult time, Pines Funerals & Cremation and SimpleCremationUSA are available to help you every step of the way. Fulfilling your needs is our job, and we assure you that your wishes will be met 100% of the time.

The Strictest Standards Are Applied in SimpleCremationUSA Cremations
When Pines Funerals & Cremation is entrusted with the responsibility of cremation, families can rest assured that only the strictest standards will be applied. All cremations are done individually in a tightly controlled process that carefully labels the remains of the deceased for identification purposes. This ensures no family can ever be returned the cremated remains of anyone other than their loved one. Dignity and respect are accorded to the deceased at all times. If family members wish to view the cremation, arrangements can be made to accommodate this.
Why Cremation is a Popular Option
Cremation is a popular choice due to environmental concerns, religious tradition, and affordability. Some of the costs associated with funerals are a result of preparing the deceased for public or private viewing through a process known as embalming, which preserves the condition of the deceased. When direct cremation is chosen, meaning the deceased will not be available for viewing, embalming is unnecessary, thereby allowing for reduced costs.
Some families choose cremation in response to environmental concerns. With cremation, resources used in traditional burials and green space are preserved. It is possible to elect for cremation and still have a traditional funeral service with a viewing. When this is chosen, the deceased will be embalmed prior to the service and then cremated after the service is complete. When direct cremation is chosen, there are number of service options available, including a memorial service at graveside or a ceremonial garden, or a committal or scattering ceremony where the cremated remains may be interred or scattered in a location that was special to the deceased. There is no requirement to have any services if this is the wish of the deceased or the deceased’s family. Family members can choose to retain some or all of the cremated remains in an urn charged to their safekeeping.
