Why is Distinctive Life Right for Your Family?

What Makes Distinctive Life Different from other Cremation Services?

When you choose to let Distinctive Life Cremations & Funerals take on the planning for your loved one’s service, you can opt to work with one of our Mobile Funeral Directors. These highly experienced professionals will come to you wherever you are most comfortable to help plan your loved one’s cremation service. They will even bring samples as well as the necessary local forms to ensure you have all the materials you need to make an informed decision.

We understand that going to the funeral home can be difficult, and we are committed to making it easier on the families we assist by meeting them at their home, work, a coffee shop, care facility or wherever is convenient and comfortable for you.

Other Benefits to Working with Distinctive Life Include:

  • Getting a price that was set with the families in mind, meaning you can give your loved one dignified service without the huge financial burden.
  • Accommodation and flexibility for your religious needs during our compassionate ceremonies.
  • Help with all aspects of your loved one’s cremation and memorial – if you need to rent a boat to scatter the ashes of your loved one on the water, we can arrange it. If you want a service at a favorite vacation spot, we can help with that as well. Our staff is here to ensure every detail meets your specifications.

How Do I Know which Faiths Allow Cremation?

We have found that Protestant denominations generally allow cremation, as does Catholicism, given a certain criteria on beliefs behind the cremation. Jewish law traditionally forbids cremation, but recently some synagogues have been known to allow it in some situations. Islamic sects mostly forbid the practice. However, to get the most accurate answer, you should ask your loved one’s clergy person.

Cremation Resources

At Distinctive Life, we have put together the following forms all in one place so
you can easily find the forms you may need for this process. If your loved one has
passed away in the Houston area and has chosen cremation, these resources may be
helpful.

Veteran-Specific Cremation Options

Honoring veterans the way they deserve is important to the staff at Distinctive Life Cremations & Funerals. We have many customizable options for military services, and we can customize your loved one’s funeral supplies and memorabilia with appropriate military insignia, including register books, flag cases, medallions and obituary bookmarks.

Distinctive Life Cremations & Funerals’ directors are knowledgeable in the paperwork the VA requires for placement in a national cemetery, as well as the benefits you may be entitled to for burial and funeral costs, so you don’t have to deal with the confusing and sometimes convoluted VA funeral benefits process on your own during this difficult time.

National Cemetery Cremation Services

Choosing cremation over a traditional burial does not affect the honors for which veterans are eligible. In addition to a traditional three-gun salute, we can also include:

  • Customized urn emblazoned with military insignia
  • American flag
  • Military honors plus committal service upon request
  • Presidential memorial certificate
  • Indefinite care of site
  • Marker or headstone

More information on the VA’s memorial and burial benefits can be found at cem.va.gov, or by contacting one of our funeral directors. Find out if you qualify.
