The Importance of the Funeral
Why are funerals important to me?
Many families find themselves questioning the value of a funeral service. In addition, many individuals tell their family and friends to make things "quick, simple and cheap." While these individuals think they are looking out for the best interests of their loved ones, it is vitally important to consider the needs of the survivors whom that person left behind. Some believe not having a funeral service will alleviate their feelings of grief, since they do not have to come "face to face" with death. However, many of the families who chose this route will become remorseful in the months after the death. At its most fundamental level, a funeral is designed to be a unique reflection of one's life, which serves to emotionally confirm the reality of the loss, and bring closure to those who remain. Considering the needs of close friends and extended relatives is also important.
There are many options available to your family to customize a service that is right for you. Whether it is a full traditional funeral, or simply a short, private viewing before a cremation, it can pay huge dividends in the future by the closure and comfort it brings.
