Nobody likes to think about his own death, but it is necessary to do so. The term “funeral home” is searched for more than 6 million times every month on the Google search engine. Planning your funeral and making arrangements for your death long before the event occurs can make it easier for your family when you do pass on. As you pre plan your family funeral services, it is a good idea to put your wishes in writing and provide copies to both your family members and your lawyer. As well, you should keep a copy for yourself in a safe place.
There are a number of aspects of your funeral that you will need to figure out during the pre planning process. For instance, you need to decide whether you want to be embalmed at a funeral parlour, or if you want to have a cremation funeral. Cost may play some role in this decision. A casket is usually the most expensive part of a “traditional” full service funeral. There are many different types of caskets at different price points, but all caskets are sold primarily as a function of their aesthetic appeal. Even if you purchase a less expensive casket, the price of traditional burial is far greater than cremation prices are. Being cremated is a cost effective way of dealing with remains and cremation prices are within the affordability range of most American households.
Another element besides cremation prices that makes cremation such a good choice is that being cremated is relatively eco friendly. Traditional burials take up a lot of green space. When you consider that an estimated 6,400 burials are conducted every year at Arlington National Cemetery alone, which averages out to 28 burials each day just at that one cemetery, the amount of planetary surface area devoted to burial is mind boggling. Funeral cremation, on the other hand, takes up no green space at all and requires no harmful chemicals like ones that are used in the embalming process. Not only are cremation prices lower for you or your loved ones, cremation prices are lower in terms of how much the process of cremation taxes the planet.
93 percent of people in the US have at some point sent sympathetic expressions of mourning in the form of cards or flowers to friends when a loved one has passed. When your family members are opening condolence cards or accepting sympathy flowers, you do not want them worrying about cremation prices or other funeral costs. That is why it is so important to research cremation prices in advance and to pay off the balance while you are alive. Doing so is a selfless legacy you can leave your family.
