A funeral service fulfills several important needs in today’s society.
- Provides for the respectful care of the deceased by providing a special tribute to a unique life.
- Helps survivors face the reality of death – the first important step in overcoming grief.
- Gives friends and relatives the opportunity to express the love and respect they feel for someone who was very important to them.
