When you are making the difficult decisions about the funeral arrangements for someone you love, you have many choices to make about how to remember their life. With more and more people turning to direct cremation as an affordable, environmentally-friendly option, you may be wondering if that is the right option for you and whether that would the best way to honor your loved one.
One of the questions you may be asking yourself is whether you will still get to have a memorial service for the deceased if you go the route of cremation. The answer is yes! A memorial service is a wonderful and very appropriate way to gather with your family and friends to reflect on your loved one’s life.
Direct cremation is no longer something that people look down on but rather embrace as a familiar and useful service that takes up less space. However, these aren’t the only reasons why direct cremation has won its place as a standard practice in our culture.
If you bury your loved one, you will have to go to the burial plot to visit them, and that can be hard for most people to do. The cemetery may be located far away, and you lead a busy life. When you keep your loved one’s ashes in an urn, you’ll be able to keep them nearby, where you can go to that special room or cabinet or mantlepiece and grieve your loss. Plus, the urn is portable, allowing you to take it with you if you move, something that certainly can’t be said about a casket buried underground.
