Who are Funerals for?

A funeral is for the friends and loved ones who survive. We all have a basic need to say good-bye with love and dignity. A well planned service will assist in the healing of releasing pain caused by the death. The funeral is a ceremony of proven worth and value for those who mourn. It provides an opportunity for survivors, and others who share in the loss, to express their love, respect and grief. It permits facing openly and realistically the crisis that death presents. Although it may be difficult to experience, in terms of confronting memories and emotions, through the funeral process, a bereaved family takes that important first step towards emotional adjustment to their loss.
