If you have decided to pre-plan your own final services, you are doing a huge favor for your family. When you pass on in the future, they won’t have to worry about the burden of planning something for you. Plus, you have peace of mind that everything you want is in order. Once you decide to move forward and make plans, you then have to decide what those plans might be. More people plan cremation services in Baltimore, MD than traditional services when they plan in advance. That doesn’t mean you have to, but if you are leaning that direction, you might wonder if direct cremation is the way to go. Here are a few reasons why it might end up being the best pre-plan for you.
1-It’s The Least Expensive
Some people who pre-plan their services also want to pre-pay for those services. That’s another benefit to your family who not only would not have the planning burden on their shoulders but who also would not have the payment to worry about. Paying in advance is nice, but it’s not always feasible. However, when you choose direct cremation, it’s the least expensive option and that makes it easier to afford overall.
2-It’s Straightforward And Simple
If you don’t want your family to make a big deal over your services, choosing what you want in advance is a good move. If they don’t know what you want, who knows what they will do for you. Choosing direct cremation keeps things simple and straightforward. There are no services before you are cremated. Your family can have a memorial service later if you and they wish to do so. You can also keep that simple, if you want, and just have an ash scattering or a small, intimate memorial.
3-You Like The Idea
If you’ve looked over the options and the idea of direct cremation is appealing to you, then it’s more likely the right choice. Go with your gut and what you feel is right. You will want to tell your family what you have in mind so they aren’t surprised when the time comes, but if direct cremation feels like the right option for you, then you should move forward with that plan.
