Being a 6th generation Funeral Director, Cody Jones has grown up with funerals his whole life, with a wealth of knowledge passed down from one generation to the next.
Here are the 10 questions he is asked the most.
Cremation is the process of reducing the human body to bone particles and ash through the application of direct flame and heat.
For those desiring cremation, you actually have more options and flexibility when it comes to service offerings. Everything is available from a traditional ceremony followed by cremation and then burial to a memorial service after the cremation has occurred.
No. Texas Law does require that the body be embalmed or held in refrigeration following 24 hours after death. We do require embalming if you elect to have a public ceremony with open casket.
Texas Law does not require that the body be held in a rigid, leak-proof container for dignified storage, transfer and handling. Today, we have a variety of cremation containers and caskets that are very economical and manufactured specifically for cremation. If preferred we also have rental caskets for ceremonial purposes.
Cremated remains resemble coarse beach sand. They are typically light in color. The cremated remains of an average size adult would weigh between 5-8 pounds and usually take up to 200 cubic inches in volume or less. The cremated remains will be placed in the selected urn.
