Staying farewell in style

My grandmother was a really stylish old woman. Even when she was sick and when she got frail, she'd still always look perfect and she'd never go anywhere without her lipstick looking immaculate! It was hard to say goodbye to her because she was such a spunky old lady. I knew that she would want her funeral to be a reflection of her style and personality. The funeral did an awesome job and made sure every detail was perfect. It's never great to say goodbye to someone that you love that much, but knowing she'd approve of the funeral did make the day go a little easier.

4 Reasons to Consider Direct Cremation for Your Loved One

More and more people today are embracing cremation as opposed to burial. However, you can still conduct a funeral service, hold a memorial service or, in some cases, plan a ceremony to celebrate the deceased person's life. But if you prefer to keep the cremation service less complicated, a direct cremation would be the best option. Direct cremations are typically more straightforward. They eliminate the need for body viewing, funeral or memorial services.

Indeed, there's a lot left out in direct cremation that most bereaved families find convenient. Read on for some solid reasons why you would want to opt for a direct cremation service for your loved one. 

Demands Very Little Planning

Arranging a cremation service for your loved one is often less demanding than planning a burial service. Cremation requires very little planning and effort on your part. It doesn't get any easier than arranging a direct cremation. You don't need to plan anything regarding cremation services or anything related. The funeral home you select takes care of everything, giving you a stress-free experience during this grievous moment. 

It's Quick and Efficient 

Direct cremation is the right choice if you want to get done with the cremation service in the shortest possible time. Because it involves almost zero planning and no services in mapping out, you can have your loved one cremated in the shortest period after their demise. It's the perfect solution for time-barred individuals to devote to the entire cremation service for their loved ones. The direct creation happens quickly to allow them to resume their everyday lives while mourning their loss. 

It's More Affordable

Direct cremation is undoubtedly the most cost-effective funeral approach. You don't have to pay for extra services, including funeral director fees, hearse, celebrants, etc. Instead, direct cremation service covers all the fundamental aspects, including cremation fees, the coffin, doctor's fees, etc. Since the cost of direct funeral service varies from one funeral home to the next, it's imperative to research and compare quotes and available options to find the most affordable one.  

It Helps Families Grieve Peacefully Rather Than Stress Out 

Finally, planning funeral services like a memorial or celebration of life can be very stressful for the bereaved family members. It deprives them of the chance to grieve in peace during such sad moments. However, direct cremation helps resolve this problem. It gives the bereaved family ample time to grieve their loss without worrying about other hassles of planning other funeral-related services.
