BC Funeral Insurance News
Canadians are becoming more creative about what should happen when they die; the most interesting part is that most Canadians now custom-design their funerals to their individual preferences. At the same time, funeral businesses, both small and big are readily available and eager to meet the teeming needs.
Krystal Riddell, a funeral director from Niagara Falls, said that our generation is no longer going the traditional way. Riddell launched Essentials Cremation and Burial Services in a bright, modern space in a strip mall in 2017.
Riddell provides services to customers for the burial and cremation of their loved ones as well as a funeral celebration after the burial or cremation. He said they handle party planning but he does not specialize in planning parties.
Kathy and John Anstruther, both baby boomers, have already planned their own funerals using Riddell’s services. According to Kathy Anstruther, when the time comes, it will hopefully make things easier for our kids. Both Kathy and John Anstruther are not interested in the usual expensive send-off; they are going for an environmentally friendly burial in a wicker casket.
John Anstruther said they don’t need the big rah-rah that comes with spending all the money for a big fancy casket and Kathy added that they would prefer to leave the additional money for their children. She added that the children will need the money more when they are gone since everything is now expensive.
The couple would prefer an upbeat affair in order to lighten the mood of the people and to minimize the grief.
