Traditional burials sometimes need to be made quickly. In many cases, this adds to the emotional stress that loved ones already feel. The funeral, wake, and burial need to be done in a certain amount of time, along with notifying friends and family. It can be very easy to leave out important details that the deceased may have wanted.
When you choose cremation, you have plenty of time to schedule a service, choose an urn and decide on the final disposition of the remains. Special touches can be added because you will have the opportunity to think about how you truly want to honor the life of your deceased loved one.
In addition, Cremation is a much more earth-friendly option and can be more personal.
Remember, funerals are to support the living in their grief and loss. A proper memorial service lays the foundation for the healing to begin, just like a wedding provides a platform of support to a couple for life. Choosing cremation can definitely be easier. You have the freedom of time on your side and don’t have to feel rushed. You have the time to involve family members in the planning process and create a memorable experience that will showcase a life well lived.
For the ceremony, you can provide memorial folders or prayer cards and custom programs that follow the services and can be saved as a memory keepsake. Large photos, custom blankets, and a video tribute can add to the memorial service. Tree seedlings or seeds that can be taken home and planted in memory will continue the circle of life.
Choosing Cremation can be an exciting and beautiful way to celebrate the deceased. It provides an opportunity for the departed to bring together those that they leave behind and those whose lives they touched most.
