Cremation has become an extremely popular burial choice when it comes to planning the final resting place for your loved one. Cremation is less expensive than a traditional burial, and cremation urns can be kept in your home for memorial. However, there are some religious implications and personal feelings to consider when ultimately deciding whether cremation is right for yourself or a loved one. These steps are meant to help you deal with the loss of someone and their cremation.
- Always take into consideration what the deceased would have wanted. If the deceased never made a choice known, cremation may be an option to consider.
- Pick a cremation urn and plan a ceremony that embraces the memories of the person you lost: personality, hobbies, interests and other characteristics are extremely important to help choose urns for ashes or to plan a proper ceremony.
- Gather opinions from family on what they believe would be a suitable resting place. Dealing with loss is extremely hard, and the added stress of an angry family can make coping much harder. It’s important to remember that the deceased no longer dwells in their body anymore, but their spirit will remain regardless of burial choices.
- Purchase unique urns that cater toward the person’s personality. If there comes a time where you decide you can’t fully let your loved one go, a cremation urn can be kept in a safe place for memory.
- Choose a place your loved one love and scatter their ashes. Be sure to check with local authorizes before scattering. Plan a heart-felt ceremony at the scattering site and reflect on their lives.
