Meaningful Funeral

Meaningful funeral ceremonies make a significant difference in how families channel their grief toward health and healing. During the funeral, the community comes together and responds to the reality that someone has died, and to the reality that those remaining will need support, compassion, love, hope, and understanding. The funeral encourages you to think about the person who has died and to explore the meaning of their life and the ways in which they touched the lives of others.

The remembering, reflecting, and choices that take place in the planning and conducting of the funeral service are often an important part of the process of grief and mourning. And ultimately, this process of contemplation and discovery creates a memorable and moving funeral experience for all who attend.

Why Have a Funeral?

When we experience the death of someone we love, a funeral service fills several important needs. First, it provides for the dignified and respectful care of the person and serves as a special tribute to their life. Equally important, the funeral service helps survivors face the reality of death, which is the first big step toward taking grief from the inside and allowing us to express it on the outside through mourning. Together with close friends and relatives who can lend support and consolation when they're needed most, the family will be surrounded by the people and services needed to remember their loved ones and move beyond their passing.
