Additionally Erwin Dodson Allen offers cremation services. You may choose to do this prior to or after the funeral of a loved one. Alternatively many people will choose a memorial service for the recently departed. The memorial service has elements of a funeral service: an opening greeting, a prayer, a eulogy, the sharing of memories by friends or family, and appropriate music. With a memorial service the urn is often displayed on a table centered at the front of the room. The family often places a large, framed picture of the departed next to the urn. What ever your need we are here to assist you in this difficult time.
