Why Funerals Are Important

  • Initiates the grieving process
  • Acknowledges the importance of a life that has been lived
  • Can be personalized to allow mourners to remember and honor their loved one in ways that are special and meaningful
  • Serves as a central gathering place for family and friends to give emotional and physical support to one another
  • Provides closure for the bereaved
  • Confirms the reality and finality of the death
  • Encourages mourners to face the pain of their loss and express their thoughts and feelings
  • Helps survivors to better cope with their grief and assist in enabling them to move on with their lives
  • Provides a context for expression of religious and other beliefs
  • Grief shared is grief diminished--and grief denied is grief delayed
