Why have a Funeral?
When a loved one dies, we often see that people want to get on with funeral planning as quickly as possible; they want closure and think that the pain will go away once the funeral has been held. It is true that funerals can be emotionally difficult, but a good funeral will provide the opportunity to share memories, gather support and put loved ones on the path to recovery.
It is the coming together of families and friends that makes the difference. This specifically created support network is a source of comfort and strength, both during the funeral and immediately afterwards.
