A funeral service is important for many reasons
A funeral gives people a chance to share their feelings while being supported by family, friends and others in the community who have known the person that has died. It is an important early step in coming to terms with the death of someone close.
It’s also a time to celebrate the life of that person, to hear stories, make tributes and share memories; the good times and funny moments, their favourite music and unique contributions he or she has made.
From the time of the death and leading up to the funeral, many people take comfort in doing things they have always done as a family. Children grieve too, so it’s good to make opportunities for young ones to be involved in some way if they have also been part of the person’s life.
The value of personalised funerals
You can make a funeral meaningful and especially appropriate by considering and personalising the elements that make up this public ritual. This can include the venue, theme, casket, order of service, music and more.
By pre-planning a funeral, it helps to ease the stress on the family in future. It means they do not need to make so many hard decisions at what is already a difficult time.
