The Daunting Preparations After a Loved One Passes, Should NEVER Interfere with Your Grieving

By Coleen Descoteaux

The Daunting Preparations After a Loved One Passes, Should NEVER Interfere with Your GrievingWhen a loved one dies, the last thing that should be weighing on your shoulders is unanswered questions: “Where do we lay mom to rest?” “Who will pay for the services?” Did she have a preference on cremation vs. burial?”

Unfortunately, these types of questions are far too often the reality of what grieving family members toil over in making these crucial final decisions for their loved ones.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  There are loving, formal arrangements that you can plan long before the day of your or your family members death.

Funeral & Burial Costs
Between the plot, casket, headstone and funeral services, the traditional burial ceremony can cost upwards of $25,000.  Plots are not easy to come by with land shortages and preservation.  In fact, many cemeteries have up to 8 individuals stacked in one plot.  In addition to green space issues, some people simply desire not to be buried in the ground for environmental reasons, as well as for personal preference.  The concept of cremation is more appealing to many people so that they can have their ashes either kept by a family member or scattered at a location of their choice.

Cremation and Preplanning
The cost of cremation is significantly thousands of dollars less than a traditional burial.  On average cremation ranges between $1500 up to $4000 depending on your urn preferences like a specialty urn or keepsake.

When you preplan your cremation details, the costs are significantly lowered and the undue stress is alleviated during the trying time of you or your loved ones passing.
