Funerals fill an important role for those mourning the loss of a loved one. By providing surviving family and friends with an atmosphere of care and support in which to share thoughts and feelings about death, funerals are the first step in the healing process. It is the traditional way to recognize the finality of death. Funerals are recognized rituals for the living to show their respect for the dead and to help survivors begin the grieving process.
You can have a full funeral service even for those choosing cremation. Planning a personalized ceremony or service will help begin the healing process. Overcoming the pain is never easy, but a meaningful funeral or tribute will help.
Describe the Benefits of Ceremonies in the Grieving Process
When someone dies, it is hard. We have to be sad because if you are not, then you are not grieving a person. When people grieve, they talk about the person that died and say how they will miss them. You can't reinvest in life until you have grieved well enough so a part of your heart stays with the person who passed away. Grieving does not mean forgetting.
- Grieving is a natural process that everyone goes through.
- There are many ways to grieve, and ceremonies can be an important part of the healing process.
- Ceremonies can help families heal together by honoring their loved one's memory.
- Ceremonies offer a sense of closure for those left behind after someone has passed away.
- Most importantly, ceremonies provide hope because they remind us that life will go on without our loved ones in it.
- In order for grieving to be successful there needs to be a balance between acceptance and denial.
- Ceremonies give people an outlet for their grief - it's not always easy to express your feelings when someone dies, but ceremonies allow that opportunity.
- The right time for holding a ceremony varies from one person to the next - some people prefer waiting until after the first year has passed before holding any kind of memorial service, while other people want one sooner than that.
