A Celebration of Life
Surprisingly, Cremation planning offers more questions & options than funeral planning. Just a few questions you need to ask yourself include;
Do I want a memorial, funeral, or no service?
Do I want viewing?
What type of urn might I need?
What will happen to my cremated remains?
Who needs to authorize my cremation?
Another consideration with cremation planning is pre-signing your cremation authorization. In accordance with RCW 68.50.160
(1) A person has the right to control the disposition of his or her own remains without the predeath or postdeath consent of another person. A valid written document expressing the decedent's wishes regarding the place or method of disposition of his or her remains, signed by the decedent in the presence of a witness, is sufficient legal authorization for the procedures to be accomplished.
The best way to answer these and other questions is to talk with our expert cremation planners.
