The Importance Of Saying Goodbye

While the world has advanced in many ways and has made considerable progress in science and technology, death and what happens after it remains a mystery. Almost all cultures believe there is an afterlife or at least a place where the souls of those that have passed, reside.

Why Saying Goodbye Is Vital Before Person Passes

No matter what your beliefs are about death, we at Nutmeg State Cremation Society understand that family members and close friends do want to say a final goodbye to their loved one. Sometimes, death is sudden, and a hale and hearty person passes away without warning or in an accident. In these cases, the people closest to the decedent do not get the chance to say goodbye to that person.

But if someone close to you is very old, has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, or has been ailing for very long, you can consider that as an opportunity to say your goodbyes to them. The person finds some comfort, and so do the family members which is a crucial aspect of the healing process for those left behind.

Saying Goodbye After Death

If you have not been able to say goodbye to a person before their death, you can do so at the funeral. Even if the person is being cremated, you can conduct a memorial service and say your final goodbye . This will help you and your family members deal with death in a healthier manner, which is crucial in the healing process.

Saying goodbye is never easy, especially in death, but it is necessary to move on. If you want to know more about funeral services, don’t hesitate to contact us at Nutmeg State Cremation Society. Our team will be happy to help.
