By Aurélie Vasseur, Content Writer
When we talk about death, it's often the mode of disposal that we mention first. We usually express our wish to be buried, or our preference for cremation. These two options are the best-known and most common, but there are others, two of which are available at our locations. Here's an overview of the 4 disposal options available.
This is the most ancestral way of disposing of a deceased person. The return to the earth represents both tradition and the natural end-of-life process for all living beings. Burial is often preceded by beautiful funeral ceremonies in a funeral home.
This process involves disposal by fire. Although opinions were not unanimous at the time of its invention, cremation has become the most popular disposal method of our generation. Faster and less costly, it also allows ashes to be scattered in unusual places unlike the traditional cemetery.
Similar to cremation, aquamation is based on the same principle of disposal. However, the element WATER is used instead of FIRE. This gentler, slower process involves bathing the deceased in a solution composed mainly of water and heating it forapproximately 12 hours. The family receives light-colored "ashes" in an urn that can be placed in a niche or scattered in a symbolic in a location.
Cryonics is a process with a very specific aim. It involves freezing the body of a deceased person, in the hope to regenerate it and revive its consciousness. Researchers working on the subject believe that science will one day be able to bring a human being back to life.
