- Help us acknowledge that someone we love has died
- Allow us to say goodbye
- Provide a social support system for family members
- Offer us the opportunity to commemorate our loved one in a meaningful way
Traditional Funeral Service is when your loved one is present. The night before the funeral there would be visitation generally in the afternoon and evening with the casket open. The service itself is normally the following day either in the chapel of the funeral home or in a church, chosen by the family. A funeral often consists of scripture reading, prayers, a eulogy, sometimes a sermon, and music. After the funeral there is a procession to the cemetery, for a committal service. There is a reception to follow at the church or the families home which concludes the services.
