... pre-planning for this "event" is the way to go as not to be a burden to our kids.I would think pre-planning has it good and bad points. My mom's wishes changed a few time in her last years. FWIW, I would think pre-planning locks you in while times might change.While we all knew my mom's wishes to be cremated, it wasn't documented - and because it wasn't documented, every sibling had to notarize their consent for cremation. Just so you know ....Has anyone any knowledge of these companies? Bad/Good experiences with them etc... What should I look for/check into etc...I haven't had experience with the companies you mentioned, but as my mom's time approached, I did some research. Prices vary wildly. Being in the Denver-Metro area, I selected "A Basic Cremation". They had an A+ rating with the BBB and a total price (w/o service) of $795. The only "disadvantage" was two to three weeks to get ashes and paperwork. I was very satisfied with their service. If I wanted it in one week, they had an affiliate, All-States Cremation (also A+ with BBB) for $1,250.I would do what you're doing - check prices, ratings and services offered. Good Luck!
