“There has been a dramatic change in our social values relating to death and how we mourn the passing of a beloved. The traditional funeral home service is becoming a relic of the past. The emotional importance of a full funeral services including the casket, cemetery burial service plus all the arrangements once a ritual, can now be a nightmare of costs and decisions.” John says.
Cremation has become today’s alternative for people of all ages and religions as a way to finalize the aftermath of a person’s life.
In the past, cremation was seldom considered an option, now nearly 30% of America’s deceased are currently cremated and that figure should double by 2025 according to the Cremation Association of North America, http://www.cremationassociation.org.
As the number of cremations dramatically increases yearly, the desire to properly scatter the cremated ashes has become a concern. When families and friends live nearby, scattering of ashes is generally a private memorial attended by loved ones of the deceased. Pre-planners leave directives where they want their ashes scattered, while others see ash scatterings as an environmental statement. For them, “it’s the green way to go.”
