It is grieving when our loved ones pass away and as their closed ones, we would hope that they do so happily and peacefully. Most people do not choose the cemetery option for themselves hence likely if you are reading this article, you have at the situation where you need to decide how you are going to handle it for your loved ones. There are many options available out there and you need to decide which is more suitable for him or her.

First, you need to decide whether you wish to go for cremation or standard burial. While the latter allows you to continue to visit your loved ones after the burial, the former will still allow you to do so.

If you decide to go for standard burial, you can consider normal burial, natural burial (or green burial). Natural burial involves burying the body naturally into the soil so that it will recycle itself and will not decompose.

If you decide to go for cremation, you can consider scattering the ashes into the sea or area which is memorable and meaningful to your loved ones. However, not everyone is favourable of this idea as it means the ashes of your loved one will be gone for good. You may be left with nothing so you can’t visit him/her next time as and when you wish. Unless this is the last wishes that come from your loved one before he or she passes away, otherwise we do not recommend this idea. Another option after cremation is to keep the ashes in a cremation urn in a cemetery so that you can visit him or her later. You may also say prayers, or leave flowers next time whenever you feel like doing so.

When making such decision, you have to consider the personal wishes of your departed loved ones and at the same time, your own needs and feelings too. In most cases, you will need to give a careful thought about how your decision can affect your and your family too. There may not be a best decision made, but after all, you can have a clear conscious that you have done your best. You will continue to lead your life with a piece of mind. Your departed one; will continue to stay in your heart, forever, and ever. You shall always feel connected to him or her, no matter what has happened.
