I have lost my child, what do I need to do, what do I do next.
The hardest thing a person may have to deal with is the loss of a child. If a person loses a spouse, they become a widow or widower. If a child loses a parent, he or she becomes an orphan. There is no word in the English language to describe the loss of a child.
Here at Bi-State Cremation and Funeral Service we will do everything we can to make this transition easier for any family facing the loss of a child. We are very familiar with working with all hospitals as well as the two largest pediatric hospitals in the St Louis area, St Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children Hospital.
There are a few options when facing the loss of a child. Some families opt to have a full funeral service for their child or a graveside service. These service charges at Bi-State Cremation & Funeral Service as well as many other St Louis funeral homes and cremation services are reduced. Many people don’t realize some caskets for children can actually cost more than a casket for an adult, the rationale behind this is many adult caskets are bulk. But children caskets are made in small numbers. In some cases, if the family has a need there may be a possibility of getting a grave at no charge. Some families will choose cremationof there child this option allows the family to bury place in a niche bring the cremains home. You can place the cremains in a children’s urn Jewelry, or a cremation keepsake like a cremation plaque that you can be purchased at Cremationplaques.com.
