If you have decided on cremation services in Key Biscayne, FL for yourself as part of your final plans, that’s a huge decision to make. You can start making those plans official by telling family members about your wishes or you can even take it a step further and plan things out with a funeral home. If you want to take things to another level, you can also designate your final resting place. It’s one less thing your family will have to decide when the time comes.
Some people know just what they want for a resting place and they may have reasons behind it. Perhaps someone you knew wanted their ashes to be buried in a cemetery next to or even on top of another loved one. Maybe someone else, who loved the ocean more than anything, wanted a burial at sea. If you have strong feelings about your final resting place, that makes the decision easier.
But not everyone has something specific in mind. For those people, you might have to rely on a simple gut feeling. You don’t have to have a reason to want what you want. It’s just what you feel most comfortable with or most at least about. That’s enough reason. But how do you come to a decision? One idea is to go over the options in your mind and see what feels the best do you. Do you not like to swim so perhaps a burial at sea doesn’t seem right to you? Perhaps you wanted cremation because you didn’t like the idea of burial, so you want to avoid burial after cremation as well. Keep going through the options until one doesn’t sound half bad. Compare the ones you have left over and see which one feels the most right to you.
Another thing you could do is simply leave the decision up to your family. Let them know that you definitely want to be cremated, but that you don’t have a preference on final resting places. They could, on your behalf, decide that for you when the time comes. This can be a nice thing for family because they are able to do what means the most to them. Perhaps they want to scatter your ashes somewhere special, so they have a place to visit or maybe they want to keep your remains in an urn at home. It can be comforting to them to decide on what they prefer if you don’t have a preference yourself.
