When a family member or friend passes away, it is a very difficult time for everyone. It is even more difficult when you do not have a chance to grieve because you are responsible for making all of the funeral arrangements. You need to find out if your loved one had a will with details as to what they want for their funeral. If your loved one does not have a will which includes their final wishes, it would be up to you to make the decisions for them.
One of the first decisions that you may need to make is whether to have your loved one buried or cremated. In many cases cremation is less expensive than burial. When you have a loved one cremated, you do not need to purchase a casket unless you are having a viewing before the cremation in Stonington. If you are planning to spread your loved one’s ashes after cremation, you do not need to pay for a burial plot, the burial, or a headstone. When having a loved one cremated, if you are having the ashes spread or keeping them in an urn, you would only need to pay for the container that holds the ashes. The price on these containers depends on whether or not you are spreading or storing the ashes, and how elaborate of an urn you want to purchase. In most cases, very elaborate urns will not cost more than having your loved one buried. Many people choose cremation in Stonington.
When you are grieving the loss of a loved one, the funeral home is often a huge comfort. The people there understand the pain that you are in, and make the entire process as easy on you as possible. The professionals at funeral homes are there for more than just helping you decide how to lay your loved one to rest. They will also assist you in planning the memorial service, getting the death announcement out in the paper, and plan the funeral.
The professionals at Mystic Funeral home will walk you through the planning process with as much sympathy and understanding as possible.
