Dallas, TX - June 14, 2012 -- According to the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), the cremation rate in the US has gone from 3.56% in 1960 to 40.62% in 2010. This rate is set to increase to 44.25% in 2015 and 55.65% in 2025 based on projections by the Cremation Association of North America (CANA). Despite this increasing trend, not many families are versed with the right information that is paramount to making an educated decision.
The Major Funeral Home, a family owned and operated funeral home, chapel, and cremation center which has been servicing families for over 45 years, is investing major resources to educate and provide families with options. For instance, they offer families the opportunity to still choose to have a full traditional funeral service with a cremation instead of a burial. Families often times express how we are a breath of fresh air because we make the process simple, we put them at ease, and we treat every family with the utmost care and respect no matter how much money they have, says Shauntavia Williams, Funeral Director at The Major Funeral Home (www.askmajor.com)
The new funeral home is conveniently located at 9325 South Freeway (South I35W), Fort Worth, TX 76140 and features an elegantly designed private viewing room. In addition, the chapel features spacious seating to comfortably accommodate friends and supporters. Our goal is to guide your family in creating a meaningful ceremony to honor the life and memory of a loved one, says Damerrick Cheerio Williams, the new General Manager of the Major Funeral Home, he then adds, a ceremony can be anything you wish it to be: simple or elaborate, traditional or unique. No matter how it is tailored, such a ceremony is an important step in recovering
from loss. Damerrick is a tenured industry expert who is actively involved with the Fort Worth Local Funeral Directors Association. The passion and dedication that he shares with his team is sure to enhance the experience for families. Furthermore, as a retired first Sergeant of the United States army, Major H Williams Sr, owner and Funeral Director in Charge, is dedicated to helping soldiers and military families from all cultures and faiths.
The team at the Major Funeral Home also encourages families to start early with the planning process to alleviate the overwhelming effect that they often times see with families who didnt take the time to plan adequately. Early planning usually results in reduced costs and less headache, says Williams, and we can help them through the process with our pre-planning department where we discuss the different plans available based on their individual situation.
