Did You Know …

The Neptune Memorial ReefTM is an awe-inspiring and affordable memorialization option that is a fitting alternative to traditional burial. An enduring habitat for marine life, the Reef is also a reaffirmation of life after life. Photograph courtesy of Neptune Memorial reef www.nmreef.com/

Not every business calling itself a society is a nonprofit.

There is no restriction on the term so some consumers might believe that a certain cremation society is run like the nonprofit memorial societies.

You don’t want to get a big surprise after you join, do you? Death is a big enough shock as it is!

Do your research. Check out the links below. And always double-check with consumer advocate groups.

 

Notes & Updates

If you ‘will’ your ashes to someone, you might want to say what is to be done with them once the original recipient passes on. Plenty of people get handed Great Uncle Edward’s ashes and have no clue where the old codger would have wanted them placed.
