My mother was cremated and now I’m considering it. What do you think of cremation?
Cremation is a very personal decision. It is important to find out what is involved in cremation and discuss your choice with other family members to see if they are comfortable with the decision to cremate. If you are considering cremation, we recommend you speak with your clergy about it since some churches condone cremation, but do not approve of it. Whether you choose to be buried in the ground, entombed in a mausoleum or scattered at sea, it is important to decide whether or not to have a memorial service. Some people think if they are cremated they cannot have a service, which is not true. A memorial service recognizes the importance of the life that has been lived, and begins the grieving and healing process for friends and family.
