It may sound a bit creepy for some but I'm actually okay with the new trend of having an at-home funeral or natural burial. Well actually when I pass away my request is to donate my organs and have my body cremated so I was never one to be laid out in a coffin. If that is your choice, I respect that.
There is a new trend where people are having at-home funeral events and natural burials. Sounds like a good idea to me, considering our loved ones could perhaps be even closer to us and you could hold a funeral event right in your home.
Now of course I understand that this may not work for everyone, but when you think about it the concept may not be a bad idea at all. Honoring your loved one at home for a couple of days after their passing makes the ceremony more personal than being at a funeral home. And placing your loved one's body in their favorite spot like next to a mountain or their favorite park would be another great way to honor them.
Hmmmm ... something to think about.
