Options For Cremated Remains

Once you have decided on Dallas cremation for a loved one who didn’t leave final service plans behind, it’s a big relief. You’ve made an important decision and the funeral home will support you in that. You’re over the hurdle and you’ve made the biggest choice of them all. However, there are still other decisions to make. What kind of service do you want to have? What will you do with the cremated remains? The final resting place is also an important part of the healing process and you will want to do just the right thing for your loved one, and your own peace of mind. Here are some options you can consider once your loved one has been cremated:

Keep The Remains In An Urn

If you can’t bear the thought of being very far from your love done, you could very easily keep their remains in your home within the urn you have chosen. This is a nice choice if you move around a lot and don’t want to leave them behind in a cemetery or somewhere else if you can’t visit them very often. Keeping the remains gives you easy access to your loved one whenever you want to think about them, and you can place them in an area where you see the urn and remember them daily.

Split Ashes Into Mini Urns

If there are several people in your family who would like part of your loved one to keep, that’s possible as well with cremation. You can get several mini urns and split the ashes among you. They could be behind photo frames that feature a picture of your loved one. They could be in the form of jewelry so you can wear them. Or they can be a small version of a normal urn. This is a nice way for several family members to get what they want from the process.

Scatter The Ashes

One of the most popular options is to scatter ashes once the cremation is complete. You can scatter ashes in a number of locations including around your property, on public grounds, into water, and many others. You will want to make sure you have the right permissions and possibly permits, depending on location. This can be a nice way to give yourself a place to go when you want to think of your loved one. IF there’s a location they thought was special, it could be a good fit for scattering.

Bury The Ashes

You can also carry out a burial for your loved one, much like you would with a funeral, only the plot for an urn is much smaller. This is nice if you want to place a headstone or plaque for everyone to have a place to visit when they want to think of your loved one.

These are a few of the options, but where Dallas cremation is concerned, you can do whatever you please. Once the cremation with Hughes Family Tribute Center is complete, take your time in making this important decision.
