It can be a bittersweet experience to have to plan final services for a loved one who has died. On the one hand, you’ll be honored to plan a body disposition that honors their memory. On the other hand, you’ll be dealing with a rollercoaster of emotions following a death close to home. When you sit down with a funeral director, you’ll get all the help you need whether you opt to plan funeral services or cremation services in Rosenberg, TX.
Either body disposition option will allow you to give your loved one a fitting final send-off. There was a time when funeral services were much more common that cremation services. But you might be surprised to learn how common cremations have become over the years. Consider 5 reasons why more and more people are opting to be cremated after their passing.
1. Cost Considerations
One of the main reasons cremations are so commonplace these days is that they are especially cost-effective compared to funerals. You can really save a lot of money if you plan a simple cremation with few if any add-ons. Ask a funeral home director for your options.
2. Portability Considerations
When your loved one is cremated, you’ll be able to take them home with you. Specifically, you can take home their cremated remains in an urn. Perhaps multiple family members will want some of the ashes. If this is the case, ask the funeral director for multiple urns.
3. Religions Considerations
Many religions are now fine with both funerals and cremations. Once upon a time, many religions, particularly Christian denominations, either advised against cremation or prohibited the practice outright. Things have now changed since most religions have approved cremation.
4. Environmental Considerations
Some people prefer to limit their physical impact on the environment after they die. That’s why cremation can be such an attractive body disposition option. The deceased’s ashes can be scattered or the urn containing their cremated remains can be taken to a private home. If you go this route with your deceased relative, you won’t have to bury a casket in a cemetery.
5. Memorial Considerations
Another reason cremation is a common option is that it opens up some interesting post-body disposition options. For instance, cremation jewelry can be created in the deceased’s honor.
