What To Do With Cremation Remains
When you have a traditional funeral for a loved one, you know what will happen with their remains. Their body will likely be present for visitation and the casket will be on-site for a funeral as well. After the funeral, the mourners will follow the hearse to the cemetery and have a burial service. But what happens when Las Vegas, NV cremation takes place instead? In those cases, there are plenty of options as to what you could do with your loved one’s remains. Here are a few to consider:
Just because a loved one is being cremated doesn’t mean they can’t also be buried. The burial plots for a cremation are a lot smaller and, therefore, less expensive. But you can still bury an urn and have that as the final resting place for your loved one, if you so choose.
Keep The Urn
Some families find comfort in buying a nice urn and then placing it in their china cabinet, on their mantel, or in another place of honor within their home. They might talk to their loved one or at least see the urn and remember them more often. They don’t want to separate from their family member and they don’t have to, even if they move. The urn can go anywhere they want it to go.
Ashes are easy to spread anywhere you’d like. You will want to check into regulations when you choose a spot, but spreading the ashes is respectful and can honor someone’s wishes. Perhaps your loved one adored the ocean. You can take the urn to the sea and spread them there. If there was a park they loved, you can spread the ashes in that area instead. You could also use the ashes to spread in a garden and grow flowers or other things in their memory.
Ashes are plentiful and if various family members want to do various things, or everyone in the family agrees to do several things, they are all options. You can have an ash scattering ceremony, for example, and spread some of the ashes while you distribute the rest to family members to use in mini urns or jewelry urns. You could also bury some so people have a place to visit and keep the rest in an urn in your home. The options are available.
