Low cost cremation in North East Ohio, Blessing Cremation Center, a state of the art facility to help with the loss of a loved one. Vito Nero Funeral Home located in Garfield Heights, Ohio.

The BLESSING CREMATION CENTER has developed a prototype facility and program designed solely around the family choosing cremation.  Since our overhead is lower than a traditional funeral home, we are passing savings on to the consumer. Our services are affordable and inexpensive. And underneath all these savings you and your loved one are taken care of in a state of the art facility, equipped with the highest quality equipment and exquisite atmosphere to ensure the highest level of service to your family.

Cremation memorial ceremonies and receptions are generally held during one period, unlike a traditional funeral with burial that may utilize a funeral home for two or three days.  Since visitors and family will come to the center only once after making arrangements, we searched for one main location central and convenient to all of Lake, Cuyahoga, Geauga and Ashtabula Counties.  This ideal central location at 9340 Pinecone Drive off Heisley Road is minutes from US 20, Route 2, or Interstate 90 and within a 20 minute drive from most all Lake, Geauga, and Ashtabula Counties.

People die at home, more often, some die in hospitals or institutions.  As a result, saying good-bye is not done as it once was.  People do not experience the reality of separation, which is necessary to make the grieving process happen.  Many social scientists say that cremation services are not for the dead, but for the living.  From a psychological viewpoint, the services should provide the catharsis to move from mourning into the healing process.  Memorial services or receptions are necessary to tie the grieving process with a formalized memorial rite, which has definite beginning and end.

Previously, we have seen memorial services being held in places other than a religious facility or funeral home such as restaurants, civic clubs, hotels, halls at condos and parks. These services can be as simple as a prayer service before or after cremation at the Center or other locations. You can have a service with Balloon Release, Dove Flight, Butterfly Release. Make this service Memorable for those that remain behind.There are many ways in which you can customize a cremation service or gathering to reflect on the person being remembered and to allow those present to participate. DISPOSITION OPTIONS WITH CREMATIONWith cremation, you actually have more choices for a final resting place than with a typical earth burial.You can choose burial in the family plot, church garden or other memorial site. You can also choose a columbarium, which is an arrangement of niches, indoor or outdoor, with memorial identity
plaques.  this is also sometimes referred to as an urn garden. You can choose to have  memorial prayers and religious rites performed at the graveside with cremation, just as you can with typical earth burial.  You can also choose to have a marker or monument as a permanent testimony to the life and the history of the deceased, and as a place of pilgrimage for loved ones to visit.With cremation, you also have other options that are not available with a typical earth burial.Scattering the cremated remains...Options with scattering remains include scattering within a memorial garden or cemetery; with the comfort of identifying marker, plaque, or memorial book entry to memorialize the loved one; or over water or in some other site loved by the deceased with the proper permission.  You can also do partial scattering , in which some of the cremated remains are scattered and the rest are retained in an urn for interment.Cremated remains can also be placed in two or more urns.  This offers the comfort of interment near more than one family member when families are divided by great distances.
