Colorado law allows you to state your final wishes regarding the disposition of your last remains. Stating your wishes provides guidance and directions, which can comfort family and friends in a time of confusion and grief.
A Disposition of Last Remains Declaration can do many things. It allows you to state your specific wishes for post-life remembrance arrangements. For example, you can decide whether you want to have a wake, funeral, viewing, or memorial. It allows you to decide where you want your ashes scattered or interred. It also gives you the power to decide whether you want to be buried or cremated. If you want to be cremated, you can provide directions on the disposition of your ashes. For example, you can choose to have your ashes scattered in a special place, turned into jewelry, made into a memorial reef, or given to family members. If you do not want to be cremated, you can decide whether you want, for example, a traditional burial in a cemetery or at a family plot, an eco-burial, or a green burial.
