Why A Funeral Service Is Important
A funeral gives people a chance to share their feelings and farewell a loved one that has died. All aspects of the funeral process are important in coming to terms with the death of someone close, including the days leading up to the funeral, the service itself, and the burial or cremation are valuable early steps. It is a time where everyone can be supported by each other, whether family, friends or others in the community who have known the person.
The funeral service is also a time to celebrate the life of that person. It gives the opportunity to make tributes, tell stories and share memories. It is important to come together and honour the unique contributions he or she has made during their life, as well as remember the good times and funny moments.
Keep in mind that children grieve too, as they are also likely to have been part of the person’s life. When planning a funeral service, it can be good to make opportunities for young ones to be involved in some way.
Making a Funeral Personal and Meaningful
There are many different elements that make up a funeral service, including venue, service sheets, music and more. We encourage people to personalise these elements, making the funeral more meaningful and especially appropriate.
Pre-planning a funeral is one of the best ways to ensure wishes are met, resulting in a fitting send-off. It also eases a lot of stress on the family at what is already a difficult time.
