How families are choosing caskets

Over our lifetimes our personality becomes our trademark. It reveals the essence of who we are and is what people remember most about us. Today, when people are faced with the loss of a loved one, they are able to make final arrangement choices that truly reflect the personal spirit of their loved one.

One of those choices is the selection of a casket, which can be among the most significant of all the arrangement decisions. For many families a consideration in selecting the most appropriate casket is thinking about the personality of your loved one and then viewing the casket selections with their personality in mind. Some aspects of a casket may then seem appropriate and your decision becomes more meaningful. For example: If your loved one furnished their home with primarily cherry furniture, selecting a wood casket with a beautiful cherry finish may seem fitting.

It should be noted that families choosing cremation today frequently select coffins and caskets to conduct the farewell service because they feel that this allows them to say good-bye in a more personal way.

Coffins and caskets are available in a variety of metals such as bronze and copper as well as stainless steel and are are also crafted from beautiful natural woods such as mahogany, cherry, maple and oak. In addition, casket interiors can be personalised with meaningful words and symbols tastefully designed, customised and beautifully embroidered.

Today, many families decide to personalise their casket selection. Contact your Creighton's representative who will show you all of the personalisation choices available as well as assist you in deciding upon the most appropriate casket for your loved one.
