When we experience the death of someone we love, a funeral service fills several important needs.
- Funerals help us acknowledge that someone we love has died.
- Funerals allow us to say goodbye.
Funerals offer continuity and hope for the living.
- Funerals provide a support system for us, friends, family members and the community.
- Funerals allow us to reflect on the meaning of life and death.
