Depending on weight, cremation takes from two to three hours.
Cremated remains resemble coarse sand. They range in color from white to gray. The remains weigh between four and eight pounds.

The Cremation Society of Tennessee met our needs as a family, in a manner that exceeded my expectations. Christopher was supportive and allowed us the freedom to design our own specific service in a manner that differs so much from the usual cookie cutter approach to funerals and memorial services.
