Elements to Review When Selecting Service Options
- Discuss the Planning Process with Your Family and Ask About Their Wishes
A funeral or cremation service is intended to memorialize the lost loved one, but it is also an important time for loved ones to have the chance to find a sense of peaceful closure. For this reason, when you are prearranging your funeral or memorial service, it is important to incorporate the wishes and opinions of your family.
- Determine Your Final Disposition
Making the decision between a traditional burial, cremation, mausoleum entombment, or any other option is an extremely personal decision, one that is likely affected by your personal beliefs and faith. Your prearrangement document should clearly state your wishes, and you should talk to your family members about your decision ahead of time.
