It is unfortunate that the loss of a loved one can cause emotions to result in a family dispute over funeral and burial arrangements. Children from a first marriage may feel Dad should be buried with Mom. Parents may not agree with an adult child’s wishes to honor a life partner. Children may disagree with whether Mom should be buried or cremated. Loved ones may not share our commitment to the form of disposition we have chosen for our own body. But, the law recognizes a right in each person to control how his or her body is handled after death. Laws provide for a right of sepulcher document that allows an individual to appoint an agent who will carry out funeral and burial plans. In most cases, a preneed funeral contract is not enough to ensure your plans will be carried out if a family member disagrees with those plans. The Transition Plan’s Right of Sepulcher Designation will help ensure your final arrangements are carried out according to your wishes.
