Sagel Bloomfield Danzansky Goldberg Funeral Care, Inc. provides excellent graveside services. A graveside service is a simple ceremony performed at the cemetery with family and friends assembled at the burial site to witness the interment of the loved one’s physical remains. In addition, we provide dignified chapel or temple services. This is where a full service is conducted at the desired chapel or temple with family and friends in attendance. After the service, those who wish to proceed to the cemetery for the brief interment service may do so. Sagel Bloomfield Danzansky Goldberg Funeral Care, Inc. provides comprehensive final arrangements to the area of Washington, DC.
As an alternative form of final disposition, cremation is an option that is growing in popularity. It is a good choice because the cremated remains can be taken with you should you move to a different area. You can easily place the urn in a columbarium niche, incorporate the ashes in keepsake jewelry or solid glass sculpture or bury the cremains in a plot at a future time. We offer a direct cremation package that includes a basic wooden urn and five certified copies of the death certificate. As recommended by all grief specialists, we urge you to have some form of service or ceremony in honor of your loved one even when choosing cremation. You may have a traditional funeral service complete with a preceding visitation come before the cremation process. You may also choose to have a memorial gathering at any time after the cremation in the setting of your preference. A memorial service may be held at temple, chapel, hotel, restaurant, park, beach, in the home or another location. Such a ceremony will promote the healing process for you and for all others who attend.
We also encourage you to engage in funeral pre-planning. Pre-planning allows you to make your end-of-life decisions while in a calm and reasonable mental space. You can determine the budget for your final arrangements, choose your own casket or urn, decide who will say your eulogy, write your own obituary, decide whether you will be interred or cremated and make all of the other deeply personal decisions that are required. Pre-funding your plan will circumvent the adverse effects of inflation and protect your family from all costs involved in holding your funeral.
