When someone we love dies, a funeral service – whether traditional burial or cremation is chosen – fills several important needs for the family and friends left behind.
First, a funeral service provides for the dignified and respectful care of the person and special tribute to their life. A funeral helps people acknowledge the death, remember the life lived and find support and strength in numbers during this difficult time.
A funeral service also helps survivors face the reality of death, which is the first step toward healing. Friends and relatives can lend support and consolation when they’re needed most. Who doesn’t feel better after a hug from a family member?
Funeral services can also give friends and relatives an opportunity to speak warmly about their loved one. Often, just seeing how much others care can be a tremendous help to a family in adjusting to their loss.
Lastly, a funeral service can be very meaningful to the attendee. Often a loss allows people to reflect on the meaning of life and death and how they might be remembered after their deaths.
