If you have decided to organize your own cremation service in Roslyn Heights, NY, you’re doing a huge service for your family. You relieve them of the burden of planning and, furthermore, of having to guess what you would have wanted. They know exactly what you want and exactly how to carry things out and, even better yet, they don’t have to do anything themselves unless they want to do something more. When you make those plans and put them into place with a funeral home, you have the option of paying for the services at the same time. Though it’s not a necessity, it is easier than other options.
First, if you decide on cremation over a traditional burial, the cost for the final services will be much lower, even if you have a memorial service attached to the cremation. There isn’t a need for a variety of products and services with cremation that you absolutely have to have with burial so that cuts back on the costs quite a bit. Even if you only have a small amount of money to put toward your final services, you can afford to pay for a cremation now over a traditional burial.
Second, paying for the cremation now allows you to get today’s prices. You know how much more things cost today than they did a decade ago. Think about how much higher they will go in the future. You don’t know when you are going to pass on, but assuming it’s a long time from now, you can save a lot of money over having family pay for the services later. It’s nice to know that more of your money can be left to family since things are paid for and you don’t have to pay extra later.
Third, family members will be burdened with grief whenever you pass on. There’s no way around that. When you plan your services in advance, that burden is gone. When you pay for the services in advance as well, that’s just another burden you lift from their shoulders. It’s really a nice way to leave a final gift for them and they will be grateful that all they have to do is support one another and show up for the services you have planned.
