When you lose a loved one, it can be extremely hard, especially, if you are the one handling the arrangements. Many people simply cannot handle the process of planning a funeral amidst their grief and unfortunately, this has led to over one million urns sitting and collecting dust. These loved ones’ never had proper funeral services. Having a funeral service is an important part of the process for a couple of reasons.
It’s a way to honor them. When someone passes their legacy doesn’t die with them. They had a whole life, no matter how long it was or how short, that’s something to remember. Funerals allow you to pay tribute to that person one last time. Funerals are emotional as they are a time for celebrating the life of this person who is no longer with us.
It’s a way to connect. A lot of families are spread out, people move for jobs and school, they get married and start their own families. Many families may only be able to get together for big events like weddings and funerals. Having a funeral service allows the family and friends of the person who has passed to get together and remember them.
It builds a support system. More often than not, the death of a loved one can leave you feeling empty and alone. Having a funeral shows the family of the deceased that they are not alone. They have a support system to help them and people who love them. It can help them come back to the real world and start to feel a little less alone.
It’s a part of the grieving process. One of the biggest things a funeral does is it helps with the grieving process. It’s a time to grieve openly and publicly and start to heal. The process to normalcy is long and hard but it all starts with a funeral service.
It's a time to say goodbye. When a loved one dies, many times there is no chance to say goodbye. A funeral gives loved ones a chance to say goodbye and begin the healing process. It gives them a chance to reflect on the life of the deceased, to share memories and stories and to get some real closure.
People have funeral services for different reasons and in different ways, but the important thing is that you remember your loved one the life they lived.
