If you have decided you want to make plans for your own final services, you are doing something huge for your family. It might feel like a small thing to you at this time, but it’s large for them later on. Even if you don’t use the cremation in DeLand, FL for decades, your family will know just what you want. That will give them the kind of peace that you can’t hand over in any other way. When they are grieving, it’s hard to pile more burdens onto them. If they have to wonder what you would have wanted as well, it can be overwhelming. You’re relieving them of that burden by planning your own services in advance.
When you choose to be remembered through cremation, you have a variety of other options at hand as well. You can ask for cremation and even arrange that basic service and then you can leave the rest up to family. Some people like to do that because they understand that while final services are about the deceased, they’re just as much for the family members who are mourning. They might want the family to get what they need to say goodbye. In these cases, it’s best to tell your family that. Talk to them about your cremation and tell them that you aren’t organizing a memorial service to go along with it for yourself because you want them to have whatever they need at that time. It might end up being a simple ash scattering or a full-blown memorial service and let them know that you’re okay with whatever they decide.
Others want to go through all of the options and make as many decisions as they can. It’s possible to include family in these decisions, if you choose. Otherwise, you are able to lay the whole service out, no matter what kind you decide to have. This is advantageous to families because, like the cremation itself, they know what you want and they don’t have to plan anything for you, wondering if it’s okay.
If you’d like to take things a step further down the planning road, you can also pay for your services in advance. This is another final gift for family members when they learn that not only is your cremation planned out, but it is paid for and no one has to worry about funding anything at all.
