Hospice Talk

Interesting to know

  • Conventional burials are chosen by over 50% of the American public. It is estimated that cemeteries in the U.S. bury 90,000 tons of steel in coffins, 30 million board-feet of hardwood and 750,000 gallons of toxic embalming fluid.
  • There are currently five cemeteries in the Twin Cities area that do not require vaults for burial.
  • You are not legally required to be embalmed to have a public viewing.
  • It is legal for friends and family members to prepare a body for burial or cremation by washing, dressing and laying out the body for a visitation or funeral.
