When a death occurs, often the family needs help to plan and prepare a funeral or memorial service where they can honor their lost loved one. But how do you know who to call? Who can you rely on to respectfully care for the deceased? These are important questions. Brown's Cremation & Funeral Service always recommends that families have a conversation with a licensed funeral director. All of our directors have been trained and accredited by a professional mortuary school to provide funeral and cremation services in Aspen, CO.
When selecting a funeral home, there are a few important things you should keep in mind.
Facilities: Evaluate the venue. Is the funeral home clean, inviting, and accessible? Is it large enough to accommodate the size of gathering you need? Is there a chapel available to hold the funeral service on site?
Prices: Request to see the funeral home’s general price list. Are the prices for goods and services affordable? Are you interested in the products they offer?
Cultural and Religious Preferences: Find out what experience the funeral home has with your family’s religious or cultural preferences. Do they know how to prepare a funeral to meet these customs?
Comfort: When you meet with a funeral director for a given service provider, make sure you feel that the director understands your wants and needs for the funeral. Are they willing to help you plan and prepare a service that will meet your goals?
The most important part of any funeral and cremation service in Aspen, CO is that families and friends can find comfort, and the wishes of the deceased are met. Funerals help families and friends say their last goodbye’s while remembering who the deceased was in life, their personality, experiences, and accomplishments. The grief and emotions can be overwhelming at times, but a funeral gathering can help healing to start.

It’s also a good idea to consider the service offerings of a funeral home. For example, Brown's Cremation & Funeral Service can offer families the following service options:
Cremation with a Service: After a cremation, many families wish to gather for a memorial service to honor their loved one. We can provide a beautiful chapel in our funeral home where friends and families can meet to commemorate the life of the deceased.
Direct Cremation: As a cost-saving measure, our staff is fully licensed and qualified to transport the body of the deceased from their place of death directly to the crematorium. This eliminates the need for storage and preparation at the funeral home.
Cremation: This afterlife care option is a growing trend because it is markedly less expensive than embalmment and casket burial.
Burial: For many, burying the mortal remains of a loved one is important because it allows survivors a place to return and visit. Our staff respectfully handles internment after funeral services are complete.
Memorial Jewelry: For those families who choose cremation, the ashes of your loved one can be included in a beautiful piece of jewelry of your choice, so that you can always keep a little part of them close.
