Alternative Containers

GriefShare is a resource available:

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. We want to help you on your journey toward recovery.

GriefShare sessions are at 6:30-8:30 June 6-August 29th in the Conference Room at Faith Journey Lutheran church. 127 2nd Ave E in West Fargo, ND. Please call Pastor Kramer @701-282-3309 or Bonnie @ 701-318-0949 for more information.    (It is open to anyone regardless of religion and life path)

Alternative Containers are what encase the body for private viewal and transportation to the crematory. We like to refer to them as a substitute for a casket. They are combustible as the body is cremated in it. They also provide safety for the crematory operators and dignity for the deceased loved one. The body could also be cremated in a traditional wooden casket should a family wish. The crematory does require either an alternative container or wooden type casket.
