First, let’s discuss cost. Funerals may be costly, like “there’s my savings gone” expensive. It is more cost-effective to choose cremation. Costs for burial plots and caskets are reduced. Even embalming is cheaper. You can save money by using this method.

It’s not all about saving cash. Many people choose cremation to align with their personal beliefs and values. Perhaps they would like their ashes to be scattered near a special place, perhaps the ocean they surfed on during summer vacations or the mountaintop where found peace.

Here’s a closer look at what actually happens in a cremation. Imagine placing your loved on in a heated chamber. Think of it as a day at Death Valley. Within hours, this process turns the corpse into ashes and shards of bone.

It is then ground into smaller particles, which are placed in a urn (or other container) of your choosing. The options are endless! The options are endless. From biodegradable containers and traditional urns for eco-friendly funerals, to the more traditional urns.

Are you familiar with memorial services as an option? Cremation does not mean that you cannot have a touching ceremony. It doesn’t matter whether you have an intimate event at your house or a lavish one at a public venue.

Do not forget the keepsakes. People like to preserve a tiny portion of the cremated remains in mementos or jewelry.

A pre-planning exercise is worth discussing. Although it might sound morbid to plan ahead, doing so can reduce stress for your family when the moment comes. This gives you more control, allowing you to decide how the arrangements will be handled. From music selections at your service or urn type (or perhaps no urn), you can choose.

Cremation has also some eco-friendly benefits. Burials that use traditional methods require a large amount of space, and they also involve toxic chemicals. The resources of our planet are less affected by cremation.

What’s that? What about water cremation? Also called alkaline hydrolysis, or aquamation — it decomposes with water rather than fire. Even more so, it is considered gentler to the environment than traditional methods.

If you want to plan for the future or make decisions following a loss, you should feel comfortable in your decision.

As a final summary (but certainly not the end), exploring various aspects surrounding this topic offers clarity and calm in the chaos of decisions often made during times when people are at their most vulnerable.

It’s important to remember that you won’t be alone as you navigate through the waters. You will find support along every path, ensuring your loved ones were honored lovingly and respectfully.
