Cremation Versus Burial
The sudden death of a loved one, an unexpected tragedy, so many questions to be answered. Where do I begin? During such an emotionally challenging time, making decisions quickly can be difficult. One of the first decisions that many families face is cremation versus burial and careful consideration and thought is of the essence.
Decisions to make to lay a loved one to rest
Few are prepared for the emotional, physical and mental toll that can take over when a loved one passes away. The immediate decision making that must be taken is that much more challenging if the deceased has not discussed their wishes prior to passing either verbally or stated their wishes in a will. Cremation versus burial is one of the first necessities to decide on and personal preference as well as circumstances surrounding the death may weigh heavily on which way family members proceed. There are many resources available to families and local funeral homes, hospice care, hospitals and even local churches may be of great service and assistance with the decision making process. Grave markers, caskets and cremation urns are additional decisions that need to be made in most circumstances.
