Why Do We Have Funerals

importance of funerals dockConsidering Your Options

Many families find themselves questioning the value of a funeral service and wonder why do we have funerals.  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. 

The Importance of Funerals

When people are considering the importance of funerals, they should consider that the traditon is not only for the deceased, but for the family and friends that have lost their loved one. It becomes the beginning of the acknowledgment that their dear friend of family member has passed.
