Springtime Cremation Options For Your Loved Ones

The time of year that your loved one passes can have a dramatic impact on the way funerals and memorial services are planned. If your loved one has passed in the spring, then you have a number of different options when it comes to choosing cremation services. There are a number of special products that relate to the season and can provide you with ideal ways to honor your loved one.

Biodegradable Urns

The spring represents an ideal time to start enjoying the outdoors again. Grounds thaw out, funerals can be held outside, and the weather becomes warmer. This is also a good time to consider the purchase of a biodegradable urn. These urns are made to be planted and often come with some type of seed for a plant, flower, or tree. The urns will naturally decompose in the ground and the ashes will be used to help cultivate a new type of living thing. It's a beautiful way to honor a loved one and spring is a great time for planting your seeds.

Scattering Tubes

Spring is also a perfect time for hiking and exploring nature. If your loved one enjoyed exploring the great outdoors, then you can honor their life by having the cremated remains placed in scattering tubes. These small tubes are easy to carry and can hold a large amount of ashes. With the ashes in the tubes, you can easily spread them around your favorite hiking trails or nature locations. As the trees and flowers start to bloom, you can really plan a special trip that will allow you to use the scattering tubes and truly honor your loved one.

Cremation Monuments

The spring season is also an ideal time to start planting your garden. You can purchase a cremation monument to become the centerpiece to your garden. This type of monument is basically like an outdoor version of an urn. It's created to be durable enough to withstand all types of weather and can stay in a garden area for years and years. Along with picking a monument design, you also have the ability to customize the creation with an engraved plaque. This creates a nice memorial that you can visit in your backyard during all of the nice spring weather.

A cremation services company, like Romero Family Funeral Home Corp., can help you select different options and offer the most ideal products for the spring season.

About Me

getting through the planning process of a funeral

Nobody ever really wants to think about what will happen when they pass away. I think that is why so many of us do nothing to plan for our funerals. After suffering through planning my father's funeral while grieving, I decided I wasn't going to do that to my kids — I knew right then that I would take care of as much of the planning as possible before my final day. This blog contains all sorts of information that can help you pre-plan your own funeral or even get through the planning process for the passing of someone that you love.
