Cremation is a very personal choice. You must determine what form of preparation for final disposition you desire. Whether you choose earth burial, entombment or cremation, it is wise to consider the emotional needs of your survivors. By including your family and loved ones in your decisions, you may avoid the possibility of added stress during a very emotional time for your survivors.
