No we do not believe it is so… Our Souly Cremation Package was what we initially offered when we first set up our company because we felt society dictated this basic cremation option and there was a need for more affordable options.
Some funeral homes will steer you away from this because it is some peoples’ belief that you are not honouring your loved one in the way you should by celebrating and having a full Funeral Service. We feel that this a personal choice and everyone is allowed their own opinion. We also do not feel that it is a dishonour in any way especially if the family have choosen to do a Memorial Service after cremation has taken place. This option can often be more of a celebration of life than a traditional funeral service because it is less stressful on family and allows more time to process.
Older people who outlive their friends and a lot of their relatives prefer this option. It is not necessary to have a full or fancy Funeral Service to honor them when just a few are left to celebrate it? Small families will often just have a get-together that is minimalistic and very personal to the deceased, and we see this as positively honouring your loved one.
Also, some people that are Preplanning their own funeral quite often ring us wanting the basic cremation option because they don’t want to leave their family in debt or they actually just prefer this option to a traditional funeral and make their wishes known to their family, prior to passing.
