Planning services for a loved one who has passed on can be very trying. You want to satisfy your family members, but most of all, you want to do your best to honor your loved one in a way they would see fit. Perhaps they wanted to be buried in their hometown, only they don’t live where they used to. Or maybe all of your family is in another part of the state and you want to take your loved one to that location. Whatever the case may be, if you have traveling in your future, cremation services in Baltimore, MD give you plentiful traveling options. Here are a few to consider:
If you want to take your loved one to a different location for burial, it can be very complicated with a casket. You, of course, wouldn’t be able to do that on your own and you would have to have the funeral home take your loved one to the new location in a hearse. That means extra costs and can be cumbersome. If you go with cremation services instead, it’s easy. You can take the urn yourself in your vehicle without having to include further costs. If you have to fly on a plane to get to a new location, that’s possible as well, but you’ll want to check into the airline to see about regulations. All of those options are available, but only when you go with cremation services.
There are some people who leave instructions as to what they want done with their ashes. Cremation services gives you the option of staying put for an ash scattering somewhere nearby or traveling as far away as you’d like to have a ceremony.
Likewise, it’s easier for others to travel to your location if you go with cremation services. While there are timelines on traditional funerals and burial processes, you can wait as long as you want or need to for memorial services and ash scattering ceremonies. If it takes a bit for loved ones to make arrangements to travel to where you and your loved one are, cremation services allows them that time.
In the end, you want your loved one to get the memorial they deserve. You also want as many of your family members in attendance as possible, whether that means they travel to you or you and your loved one travel to them.
