Cremation is becoming more popular every year.
El Paso, TX (PRWEB) January 06, 2013
In her book Exit Strategy: Thinking Outside the Box, bestselling author Michelle Cromer spotlighted artisans who specialize in the creative cremation concepts. She has now partnered with SharedSorrows.com to provide consumers with resources, information and contact information for these and other artisans.
From scattering flights and reef placement to jewelry and fireworks, Cromer and SharedSorrows.com have identified memorable uses for human remains. “Cremation is becoming more popular every year,” says Jessica DeHoyos of SharedSorrows.com. “We have—and will continue to—seek out the best providers to offer their services on our site, so that people can consider the full realm of possibilities.”
Traditional funerals, including burials, have become prohibitively expensive for an increasing number of Americans. “Since cremation may cost as little at $800, the family can consider any number of creative tributes to honor their loved one,” says DeHoyos. SharedSorrows even offers consultations with Ms. Cromer to plan a completely unique and special farewell.
DeHoyos adds, “The number of deaths that result in cremation has climbed dramatically in recent years and is now about 40%. It just makes more sense for several reasons including cost and environmental considerations. But more importantly, I always remind families that unlike burial in a cemetery, cremation won’t create a situation later in life where a job transfer or other move takes you far from the site where a loved one was buried.
