There are some things about your future that you just can’t control. You don’t know, for example, when you will pass on or exactly how, though you might have some guesses based on family history. While you can’t control your own end, you can control what happens after, even if you aren’t around to say anything to those in charge. When you plan your own cremation in Niles, IL in advance, your family will want to honor your wishes. You have the power to tell everyone you love what you want by planning ahead.
Choosing your disposition method is a great first step to planning your own final services. You will want to look over the options and choose with care as your decision is final once the time comes. You may already know that you want to be cremated and that is a great place to start. However, there are other decisions to make within that choice. You could be cremated soon after your death, which is called direct cremation, without any services beforehand. Your family could have a memorial service later and you can even set those plans up for them with your pre-plan, if you’d like. Or, you can have a full funeral in advance and then go ahead with cremation after those events take place. The decisions are yours and when you plan ahead, you are in control of how things operate.
Setting things into place before you pass on is a really nice gift for your family. You might rather give them gift cards and chocolates at the holiday gatherings, but when your time comes, having the plans in place is something they won’t take for granted. They will be mourning and all they’ll really want to do is spend time with one another, supporting each other through it. When you have plans in place, they can do just that. Plus, they won’t have to guess at what you would have wanted them to do. They’ll know exactly what you want because you have plans in place. There’s no guesswork necessary.
You can even pay for your plans in advance, if you’d like to do so. This guarantees you today’s prices instead of whatever the prices will be in the future. And it also removed the financial burden from your family so no one has to worry about where the funds will come from for your final services when the time comes.
