What is a Direct Cremation? A cremation without viewing, of any kind, and/or without a funeral ceremony or rite, prior to the cremation. If you wish to have a viewing or funeral services prior to the cremation, please contact a Traditional Funeral Home to assist you with the arrangements.
What do I do in the event a loved one passes? If a loved one passes make sure that you provide the facility with our Name and Phone number. Once we are notified by the facility or by you, we will begin to take your loved one into our care. We will collect the necessary information to complete the cremation packet to be emailed to you. This should be completed within a few hours of our notification. Our cremation packet will have further instructions and time lines when you receive it.
How do I pay for the Cremation? We make this part easy. Once we have the total price for the cremation and death certificates we will send you an email with the total and a convenient way for you to pay with your credit or debit card. Payment must be secured before the cremation can be performed. Payment should be made when the email is received. We are not able to “hold” until money can be gathered.

While the City of San Antonio has been known for years as “Military City USA,” it is now finally official as the city has trademarked the phrase and will start using it on logos and promotional material. San Antonio has been called Military City USA dating back to World War II, but the phrase was never made official. This past March, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially granted the exclusive use of the phrase to the city of San Antonio. (Photo by Olivia Mendoza)
