Why Have a Funeral

There are many reasons why people might choose to have a funeral. For some, it may be a way to say goodbye to a loved one and celebrate their life. For others, it may be a way to come to terms with a death and find closure.

The Value of a Meaningful Funeral.

A funeral is really a ceremony to say “good-bye” to someone who has been an important person in our life.

A Meaningful funeral goes beyond a basic ceremony, incorporating the unique and special nuances of the person who has died. The sight of photo memories, the sounds of favorite music, the aroma of floral tributes, and the touch of family and friends that have come to encourage us. Our senses are engaged in what it means to love and be loved, and now we also feel a little bit lost. These grief related feelings are an important milestone and can help us get back on track.

If you choose to pre-plan, you will have the privilege of setting the tone of your funeral and leaving a clear path for your family to follow. You have the opportunity to describe your life, interests, passions, the way you chose to live, and how you want to be remembered. Pre-planning provides you with the time to think through important issues and important people.

Your legacy The results of planning for you are peace of mind. The results for your family are that you have provided a way for your loved ones to be brought together when the time comes, and not leaving them to “guess” what you would have preferred.

Simple or Elaborate The value of a Meaningful funeral is in focusing on the true worth of life, embracing our own mortality, highlighting a life well-lived, thereby giving deserved honor to those we love the most.

Thank you so much for everything you did. I could not have imagined a more beautiful service. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to you.
