Preplanning your direct cremation is a great way to ensure that your final send-off proceeds just the way you want it to. It puts you in the driver’s seat — and doing the preplanning also means that you can spare your loved ones from having to plan for you after you’re gone. But it always helps to have a checklist when making arrangements with a Mustang, OK direct cremation company. Here is a checklist to refer to. It’ll help you through the process.
List What Body Disposition You Want and What Services You Want
You should first list the body disposition you want. If you want a direct cremation, be sure to specify this. Do you want a simple direct cremation with no added services? Be sure to stipulate this. You can also list if you want a memorial service or a celebration of life. Basically, you want to determine exactly what services and events you’d like with your body disposition. This will make things a whole lot easier for your family when the time comes for your final services.
List Where the Events Will be Held and Who Will Take Part
If you’re going to have a memorial, list where you want the event to be held. You might even wish to list multiple locations based on preference. This will ensure that there’s a plan B, a plan C, and so forth if your preferred location is not available when needed. It’s also a good idea to list who you want to officiate your memorial service, who you want to read the eulogy, who you want to perform renditions of your favorite songs, and more.
List Charities You’d Like Well-Wishers to Support
Would you like those who attend your memorial to make a financial donation to a charity in lieu of bringing flowers? You can mention charities that are near and dear to your heart. And let your loved ones know, too, that you want them to encourage others to donate to good causes.
List People You’d Like to be Invited to Your Memorial
It’s a good idea to list all the people you’d like to be notified of your passing and to be invited to your memorial. Include names, phone numbers, and addresses. Even if anyone and everyone is invited to attend, you might still have people who are particularly special to you who you want to be there.
