The truth is, as adults, we are each responsible for our final disposition.
What is the point of securing a brick-and-mortar home without planning for a final resting place for your physical temple?
Being memorialized is a beautiful gesture. It can be quiet, reflective, creative, and demonstrative. A private celebrant , or even a shaman can be invited into the ceremony. Precious artifacts of\\from the deceased person's belongings can be offered as gifts to family and friends.
Cremation is an economical way to approach a situation that would otherwise be stressful on the survivors.
In the age of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), many people are not even getting an opportunity to say good-bye to their loved ones.
When death comes unexpectedly because of suicide, homicide, or some other tragic means, acceptance is seemingly impossible or unendurable.
Death anxiety has a paralyzing quality. It causes an individual to suspend thought; and, this proves detrimental in the long run.
Why? Because preparation is a major part of end-of-life planning.
