Expected or not, saying goodbye to a loved one when they pass away is an excruciatingly painful experience. The closest living relatives are typically heavily involved with the final arrangements planning process related to services like funeral and cremation in Hendersonville, TN. You, and others close to you, could be responsible for making plans to lay your loved one to rest. The good news is that there are many possible solutions to meet varied financial, religious, cultural, or other needs.
Services for a Funeral: A funeral can be held as soon as arrangements can be pulled together, and the family is ready. There is typically an urgency with funeral services because the deceased's remains are an essential part of this service. Even though the process of decomposition can be significantly slowed through embalming, having the dead properly laid to rest is something that brings closure and peace of mind. Funerals offer an opportunity to pay final respects and extend love and support to the family and other mourners.
Honoring with Memorial Services: There are times when for one reason or another, having an honoring ceremony with the body present is just not desired, practical, or possible. In these cases, a memorial service is a beautiful way to reflect on the life that has been lived and honor the memory of the deceased. Memorials also work wonderfully if you simply need time to prepare and plan for these services. The body can be laid to rest or cared for via cremation in the meantime.
Cremation as an Alternative to Casket Burial: There are increasing concerns with casket burial from an environmental standpoint. In densely populated areas, burial space is minimal and sometimes cost-prohibitive. Some feel that our final footprint should be reduced and look for ways to avoid the burial of synthetic caskets and vaults and chemicals used for embalming. Cremation simply burns the deceased's remains until only a small collection of material is left. These are called ashes, and they don’t take up much space at all.
