What’s The Point Of A Funeral?
Funeral services are carried out as a norm when a family member passes away. It is a way for people to say goodbye and acknowledge that the person they have loved has passed on. It also the time when the grieving family provides support to each other.
Why Conduct A Funeral Service?
In many ways a funeral service also compels us to reflect on the actual meaning of life and death and it also gives us the hope to live. Every family will have a specific way in which they conduct a funeral service when a loved one passes.
But the purpose or the point of conducting a funeral is the same regardless of tradition, culture and race. Take a look at what the meaning of this is:
- Conducting a funeral ceremony is one of the best ways of celebrating the life of the deceased.
- It gives family members the time to come to terms with their loss.
- They are able to interact with other family members and close friends of the deceased and share memories; this helps in the healing process.
- The funeral service is the time which gives those left behind, the time to express their feelings about the person who has passed.
- Sometimes it becomes very difficult for close family members to face the reality of the death of a loved one. However when you have a funeral service, it compels you to face that reality and you are able to deal with the loss in a better way.
You can express your feelings, thoughts and beliefs through a funeral and take the opportunity to say your final goodbyes to your loved one.
