No two lives are exactly the same, and no two funeral services should be, either.
A funeral service that’s both significant and memorable should be as distinctive as the person being celebrated. It should be a service and gathering reflecting the person’s wishes, honoring and highlighting your loved one’s life. A funeral director can help provide, with knowledge and experience, along with the high quality service, some of the support and direction needed to help with this momentous service.
Traditional funeral services would follow two formats.
A traditional funeral service would incorporate a visitation a first day, with the funeral ceremony the next day, followed by a traditional earth burial. The visitation would usually be held at the funeral home and the ceremony can be either at the funeral home or at a church.
A consolidated traditional funeral service would have both the visitation and the ceremony on the same day followed by the burial.
A funeral is an important event. It helps give meaning to a person’s life. It enables family and friends to come together to express feelings of grief and sadness and to accept the reality of death, so they can overcome the emotional pain.
The funeral director can help provide information regarding available services, facilities, merchandise and costs.
