When you find your soul mate, the other half of your heart, and the one that you want to spend eternity with, it can be extremely difficult and painful to think of ever being parted – even in death. While traditional burials often have husband and wife buried next to one another, there are other options. Here are some ideas that you can use when preplanning your funeral:
Couples who are preplanning their funerals can choose their burial options as well. While you may still opt for a traditional ceremony, a double-depth burial gives an added feeling of closeness to your loved one when you both pass from this world. Caskets are placed on top of one another, and a single marker with both names indicates the burial space. If one or both of the individuals prefer cremation, the casket would be placed below and the cremation urn above, still in the same plot.
Companion crypts are also available for those who prefer an above-ground burial, where the caskets are placed side by side or placed together lengthwise. in a tandem-crypt arrangement. This placement for your final resting place would allow family an indoor location to visit, and spend time; relaxing and sharing their thoughts, dreams and feelings.
