When you work with funeral homes in Orlando, FL, you will quickly get over any misconceptions you had about those locations and the people who work within them. However, you might still have certain things in mind regarding cemeteries. It’s best to get over those things because you will have to work with a cemetery as well if you are burying your loved one after a funeral service. Here are some of the things you might have heard about cemeteries, or simply believe yourself because of the movies you have seen.
Cemeteries Are Sad, Depressing Places
While cemeteries represent sadness, in many ways, because they deal with death, they can also be very serene, peaceful places. They are places you go to remember and honor someone and there’s nothing sad about that. You are able to place your loved one in a safe location that gives them the restful final resting place they need. Feeling the breeze blow and the sun on your skin can be nice when you visit. That’s not sad or depressing at all.
Cemeteries Are Getting Full
While there are some cemeteries that are short on space, there are plenty of cemeteries in the area with plenty of plots available. If you don’t want to take up more space than you have to, cremation is always an option. Cremation plots are much smaller (and cost less, too) and are something that helps save space.
Embalming Is Required For Burial
Actually, it is the law that funeral homes do not require embalming. It is a good service if you are going to have a visitation and funeral, but it is not required, especially if you are going for direct burial without services beforehand. If it’s not needed for the services you have to have, there’s no reason to go through that process and the extra expense.
You Must Buy Caskets From The Cemetery
When you are working with a funeral home, they are going to have casket and urn options available. Cemeteries also have those products available, most of the time. You don’t have to worry about what vendor you use and you should never feel forced into buying from any particular location. You are the client and you get to choose the product you want to use for your loved one. The funeral home or cemetery should be helping in aiding you to find what you need, whatever that might be, and wherever you might find it, even if it’s not with them.
