You may know a few things about cremation services in Key Biscayne, FL, like the fact that cremation has been around for thousands of years and that it’s become more popular today.

Your Loved One Wanted Burial And Left Funds

Not everyone wants to be cremated, for a variety of reasons. And if you have a loved one pass on and they don’t want cremation and you know it, that’s reason enough to go with a traditional burial. Sometimes, it can be harder because burial does cost more. However, if your loved one left funds behind, either specifically for their funeral, or just in accounts that you can use however you need, then a traditional burial is simple enough to make happen.

Traditions Are Important To Your Family

Many families have traditions and while you may not recognize that some of them revolve around final services, when the time comes to plan one for a family member, you will take note that your family generally does things in a certain way. If you’ve always had visitations, funerals, and burial services before, that might be important to your family to say a final goodbye and get the closure that they need. If those traditions are important, that’s a huge reason o go with a regular burial.

Your Loved One Didn’t Accept Cremation

Even if your loved one never specifically stated that they wanted to be buried and even though most people do accept cremation today, there are still some that don’t like the idea, for whatever reason. If your loved one stated that they didn’t like cremation for one reason or another, you will want to avoid it as their final disposition out of respect for them. Everyone has their opinion and when the time comes for final services, you want to do what they would have wanted. If you know how they feel about cremation, it’s best to avoid it since you know it’s not what they would want.
