Holding a funeral service following the death of a loved one not only confirms that a death has occurred but also that a life has been lived. The planning of a service is the first step a family takes which helps them face the reality of death and express grief in a healthy manner. The funeral service also provides an environment where it is socially acceptable to express your feelings of loss and grief, to allow family and friends to remember, acknowledge, and honor the life lived, while having the support of others from the community. Grief shared is grief diminished.
