There are costs to just about everything in this life, even death. When someone in your family passes on, you have to figure out how you are going to pay for their final services. If you decide on direct Dallas cremation, that will most certainly save you money over going with a full traditional funeral. You can then use that money for other things, which might bring even more honor to your loved one. Here are a few things to consider.
Save Money On Plots For Charitable Donations
If you decide on cremation, you don’t have to buy a plot in a cemetery for your loved one. You can scatter their ashes or do any number of other things instead. What money you would have used on a cemetery plot can go toward a charitable donation instead. It’s nice to honor your loved one by donating to a charity they supported. You can also use other money that people might send you in that way.
Save Money On Caskets For A Celebration Of Life
If you were to have a funeral, you would need a casket. Since you are going with direct cremation and saving the money you would have spent in that way, you might have a celebration of life instead. The celebration can help you to gather people together and honor your loved one. You can spend money on food for that event, decorations, party favors, or any number of other things instead of having to buy a casket.
Save Money On Headstones For A Trip To Scatter
Since you don’t need a headstone for your loved one’s final resting place, you can instead take a trip somewhere to scatter their ashes. Use the money you saved from getting a headstone and travel to the ocean to scatter your loved one’s ashes, as you know they would have wanted, or go to their hometown from when they were growing up to do it there.
Save Money To Keep Things Simple
One big reason to go with direct cremation and to save money is to just keep things simple. Perhaps you don’t have as much money to go around for the process so you opt to keep things simple. There’s nothing wrong with simple, direct cremation because it’s all you can afford. It might feel like something that your loved one would appreciate anyway. And you can still celebrate their life after the cremation in a way that costs very little, or is even free. There aren’t any costs to gathering a family in the park for a picnic, after all.
