Farris Funeral Service October Learning Series Provides a Modern-Day Outlook on Cremation

Oct 22, 2018 | Farris Funeral Service

ABINGDON, Va. — Farris Funeral Service & Crematory will host the second installment of its 2018 Learning Series at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29, at the Forest Hills Chapel, located at 19415 Lee Highway in Abingdon, Virginia.

Mike Farris, manager of Abingdon-based Farris Funeral Service & Crematory, will present “A Contemporary Approach to Cremation” in an informal, question-and-answer/discussion setting.

“Cremation is a topic in which Washington County residents are beginning to express an interest, especially as the public’s preference for cremation continues to rise,” Farris says. “We often receive questions about the various options for a cremation service, if there are any rules or regulations for dispersing ashes in Northeast Tennessee or Southwest Virginia, and if you can have a private or public viewing prior to a cremation ceremony. We look forward to providing participants with the opportunity to learn more about cremation and answering their questions.”

The event is free-of-charge and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
