The funeral allows people to remember and honor their loved ones in a special way. It serves as a central gathering place for family and friends to give emotional support to one another, while encouraging mourners to face the pain of their loss. The opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings helps them to better cope with their grief, and enables them to move forward in their lives. It initiates the grief process while bringing closure to the death by remembering their lives.

“What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”

– Helen Keller
