How Tippecanoe Memory Gardens Addresses
The Top 4 Cremation Concerns
Concern #1 – Paying a Fair Price
Many people are surprised to learn that some West Lafayette funeral homes and some local cemeteries are no longer family owned. Instead they are owned by large, publicly traded corporations based in other states. A portion of the corporate headquarters expense is added to each and every price they charge.
Tippecanoe Memory Gardens, Funeral & Cremation Service is a family owned business committed to always offering a fair price to every family we serve.
Concern #2 – Having the Opportunity to Say Goodbye One Last Time
Saying goodbye to your loved one is never easy. Unfortunately, in today’s culture, many people try to skip this step. The sad reality is that failing to say goodbye to someone you love can leave emotional wounds that are difficult to heal.
At TMG, whenever possible every family is given the opportunity for a private farewell and identification of your loved one. If a public visitation is planned, the private farewell is typically scheduled to precede the public visitation. funeral home. On a practical level, personal identification is an important step in our security procedures. On an emotional level, this private time helps family members as they mourn the loss.

The majority of cremations in West Lafayette include some form of funeral ceremony or memorial service. Whether religious or non-religious, a service of some form always plays an important role in the healing process for the family and friends. Unfortunately, for some families, finding a place for a ceremony can be difficult especially if they are not members of a local church.

Concern #4 – Deciding What to Do with the Cremated Remains
All too often a family member receives the cremated remains and are left wondering…now what? Do you scatter the ashes someplace? Do you place them in an urn? What do you do with the urn?
