Losing a loved one is an emotionally difficult time for family members and friends. But it is also a time of making important decisions. Unless the deceased made prior arrangements or voiced burial preferences, the decision usually falls to the immediate family. Besides traditional funeral services, an increasing number of people from various religions are choosing San Tan cremation for their loved ones. This decision may typically be based on economic or ecological reasons. The benefits of San Tan Cremation can all be discussed with professionals at Mountain View Funeral Home.
Simplicity of San Tan Cremation
One of the benefits of San Tan cremation is that it does not require embalming. Embalming is a process that slows down deterioration of the body through the introduction of strong chemicals. This step is taken when the body will be held over for visitation. Cremation can take place almost immediately so that the embalming process can be eliminated. This removes all time pressure from the burial service, since cremation can take place in an expeditious manner. As well, cremated remains are easy to store and travel with in the case where the deceased has requested a different location for ashes to be spread.
San Tan cremation can also be cost effective. As we discussed, there is no need to embalm, so that expense is not incurred. You really don’t need anything more than a simple cardboard box to store the remains. Of course, many people choose to use cremation urns as a way of memorializing their loved one. Cremation urns can run the gamut from simple to elaborate based on your preference. This decision depends on whether you want to spread the remains in a favorite location of the deceased or display them in your home.
Effects on the Environment
Cremation is a process that reduces the body into small organic bone fragments, which can be added back to the earth. The time of the actual cremation process is carefully coordinated at Mountain View Funeral Home to leave the smallest carbon footprint. This option appeals to many who are environmentally conscious.
