When you lose someone close to you, the grieving period is always hard. The funeral is an important part of the healing process for many reasons. It helps to recall the memories of the individual, connect with family and friends, and celebrate their lives in a way they deserve. Learn more about why traditional funeral services are a necessity for us to be able to move forward.
As many of us know, denial is the first stage in the grieving process. It can be extremely difficult to wrap our brains around the reality of death, especially if it was unexpected. Our first coping mechanism is typically to deny it for as long as possible in hopes that they’ll be coming back. The funeral allows the reality of death to set in, and allow you to begin to accept it.
During a time of grief, it’s common to feel disoriented and lack a sense of time and structure. Days blend into nights, and days go by sometimes slowly and others in the blink of an eye. Your schedule is likely all off when you’re mourning, so it’s important to have something to do during this time. A traditional funeral service allows family and friends to all get out and gather at the same time to remember their loved one.
