Have you preplanned your direct cremation with a Yukon, OK crematory or funeral home? Most people will acknowledge that preplanning is a good idea, but many of those same people haven’t actually gotten around to making arrangements. There are lots of reasons why some people drag their feet when it comes to preplanning, and many of these reasons are based on misconceptions they’ve bought into hook, line, and sinker. Beware of these errors!
Misconception: Preplanning will Hasten Your Own Demise
Some people have fallen for the superstitious notion that preplanning a body disposition is a bad omen that could hasten their own premature demise. There is absolutely no truth to this doom-and-gloom idea. But while there is no statistical evidence to suggest that someone who preplans could die sooner than had they not preplanned, there is evidence to suggest that those who preplan tend to have greater peace of mind as a result. They can sleep better since they know that their preplanning will make things easier for their loved ones after they pass away.
Misconception: Preplanning Means Focusing on the Negative
This misconception is just that – a misconception. The reality is that everyone will die at some point. There’s no denying this or avoiding it. Preplanning isn’t about focusing on the negative, it’s about acknowledging the cold, hard truth. It’s about being responsible so that your loved ones don’t have to plan on your behalf after you’re gone. You can well imagine how it feels to lose to loved one. Imagine having to plan that loved one’s funeral or cremation while you’re still in mourning. It’s not ideal. You can spare your loved ones this scenario by preplanning. After you’ve made these arrangements, you can let your family know that you have done so. Explain why you did it and what it means for them. It’s a talk that will be worth having.
Misconception: Families are Supposed to Plan for Their Deceased Relatives
It is true that families should make final services arrangements for their deceased loved ones – but that’s only if their deceased loved ones didn’t preplan for themselves. It’s always best for people to preplan so that their loved ones only need to carry out those plans. Families will, by default, have to plan if they lose someone who didn’t make arrangements previously. But this doesn’t mean that leaving this responsibility to the grieving is the best course of action.
