3 Caskets to Consider When Planning Your Loved One’s Celebration of Life, Ewa, Hawaii

Planning a ceremony can be stressful. On top of the grief and loss, you have to make several decisions about how best to honor your loved one in a short time. While picking out caskets may feel like the least of your worries, the team at Leeward Funeral Home in Pearl City, HI, explains it’s a crucial part of the ceremony. Below, they discuss the most popular options and share the benefits of each to help you make the best decision possible.

3 Options for Caskets to Honor Your Loved One

1. Metal

If your loved one was passionate about modern style, opt for a metal casket. These options are made most commonly of stainless steel but can come in bronze and copper as well. Like wood caskets, these models are available in different finishes, from brushed metal to polished.

2. Wood

CasketsWooden caskets are the most traditional option available. These models are made from different types of wood, most commonly mahogany, cherry, maple, and oak. They’re available in a natural stain but can come in different colors, depending on the needs of your family. Furthermore, each wood can be polished as much as you like, giving you the option of a satin finish or a glossy polish.

3. Cremation Caskets

People are increasingly opting for cremation, but for loved ones, this can be a difficult proposition to process. This option allows you to have an open casket at a funeral service but still honor your loved one’s wishes for cremation. Unlike traditional models, they’re designed to be used before and during the cremation process and are often priced accordingly, so you can use the majority of your budget toward honoring your loved one.
