Figuring Out The Services
If you’ve already decided you want to be cremated and you’re sure about the option, you then have to think about the services around your cremation. Perhaps your family likes traditional funerals. You can have that for yourself and then move forwards with cremation after the fact. Or, you can be cremated more directly soon after you pass on and have a memorial service after that at any time. The options are really limitless as to what you can do around cremation. If you want to plan in advance, you’ll want to think about those options with care.
How Much You Will Plan
You can also think about just how much of your final services you will plan ahead of time. Perhaps you want cremation and that’s all you know. You can leave the memorial service up to your family to plan later. Some people like that option because then family can plan what they need in order to say goodbye and get closure. However, you can also plan absolutely everything out in advance, from the music to the type of service and beyond. That’s a nice option as well because you get exactly what you want and you don’t have to worry your family about any plans they might have to make on their own.
