The Value of a Funeral
Funeral services benefit the family in several ways. First, of course, the funeral provides dignified care of the deceased. Also, the funeral proceedings help those who are left behind take the first step in overcoming grief . . . that is, facing the fact that a death has occurred. Further, the funeral brings together friends and relatives who can offer comfort and support at a time when it is needed most.
Contemporary funeral arrangements offer the opportunity for family members and other loved ones to reflect upon the unique life that has been lived. Funeral arrangements that are made in keeping with the personality and interests of the deceased are especially meaningful for those who are left behind. Due to the many details and decisions that must be made when a death occurs, these arrangements are usually more satisfying when made in advance, while there’s ample time to talk about preferences and decide together among the many options.
