What’s The Point Of A Funeral?
When someone we love passes away it leaves us in sorrow and having a funeral service fills in certain important needs. It helps us acknowledges that someone we love has passed away and also gives us the hope to continue living.
The funeral tradition of conducting funerals has been alive since the very beginning of human history. Family members and friends get the chance to say their goodbyes to the departed soul and the service provides some comfort to them. In many ways, a funeral also becomes the time when people reflect on the meaning of life and death. Having a funeral:
1. Gives Us a Chance to Pay Tribute
During the funeral service tributes are paid to the deceased person. A funeral service has a number of different purposes such as- remembering the life of the departed, providing comfort and support to family & friends and acknowledging the death.
2. Allows You To Begin Mourning
Facing the reality that someone you loved has passed away is extremely difficult and conducting a memorial service helps those left behind, deal with the loss. It gives us a chance to truly grieve and express our feelings through mourning.
3. Helps Family Members Give And Receive Comfort & Support
When someone you love and care for passes away, it leaves you sad and hollow from the inside. It is difficult to express why you truly loved and respected someone who was important to you. Having a funeral service gives the members of the family this opportunity. Supporting each other is probably the best way to help you cope with the loss.
