Planning a funeral service can be difficult any time of year, but when a loved one passes away around the holidays, it can be hard to find the right time to have the service and make it possible for family members and friends to come. If you find yourself in this type of situation and are looking for a way to plan a funeral that works around other things, you may want to consider cremation services in Clara City, MN instead. Cremation has many benefits and it can be easier to plan under various circumstances. Here are some reasons you may want to choose cremation around the holidays.
Buys You Time
Sometimes you don’t have time to plan the memorial service you want for your deceased loved one. You may want to consider cremation as a way to buy you some time to make the plans, come up with the money for the ceremony, or need to give your friends time to make their travel arrangements. When you choose cremation you can go ahead and have the body processed and then keep the remains safe in an urn until you can make plans or arrangements for a memorial service.
Funerals can be expensive and when you are working with a limited budget around the holidays, you may need to save up more money. With cremation, you can pay for a basic cremation, which can be very affordable. Once the body has been processed, you can save the remains and save your money to plan your service. Once the holidays have passed, and you have more money, you can plan the service and give your loved one they goodbye they deserve.
Not everyone can travel for a funeral when a person passes away. If your family member or friends have made travel plans for the holidays or already have other things going on, they may not be able to plan for a funeral around those plans. When you choose cremation, you can choose to hold off on the ceremony until after the holidays. This gives your family members and friends time to make new travel arrangements and schedule time off so they can attend the funeral and pay their respects. You can put it off as long as needed to make sure everyone can attend.
If you have a loved one who has passed away around the holidays, you may be wondering who you will find the time and money to give them the funeral or memorial ceremony they deserve. You can always choose cremation as an alternative to a traditional funeral. If you are ready to plan a cremation or need help planning a funeral, call the Wing-Bain Funeral Home.
