The Details Of Funeral Burial Services
By Michelle Bery
Planning the funeral of a loved one can be one of the
most difficult things you encounter in this lifetime.
The level of emotion and grief in conjunction with the
enormous details upon which to be decided can result in
even greater turmoil. But, unfortunately, no matter how
we're feeling, there are certain arrangements that we
must make including funeral burial services. In this
case, it is essential to work with a reputable funeral
home that will compassionately walk you through the
process of making final arrangements.
Funeral burial services include everything from the
coming together in memoriam and prayer to the burying of
the deceased. Planning a funeral service completely
depends on the particular cultural and religious
preferences of the deceased and their family. While some
families choose to have a viewing followed by a service
at the funeral home, others will hold a funeral at a
house of worship. Still others choose to hold a memorial
service following the burial in a place special to the
Included in the details of these funeral burial services
are a number of choices including a person to lead the
service, flowers, music, and even photos if you choose
to honor the deceased in this way.
Of course, following - or in some cases, prior - to a
service is the burial of the deceased. Burial customs
vary enormously depending on culture. While some are
buried in family cemetery plots, others are entombed in
mausoleums. Still others choose to be cremated and their
ashes spread in a particularly special place.
There are those instances where the arrangements of
funeral burial services are handled by the deceased
prior to their death. Having very definite ideas on what
they want, they leave detailed instructions on how they
wish to be honored. In this case, it is incumbent on the
family to simply put into motion the decisions already
made by their loved one. In other cases, it is necessary
for the family to arrange funeral burial services on
their own. While overwhelming, it does not need to be
confusing. Ultimately, the most important thing is to
reflect the unique personality of the deceased. And in
so doing, you will honor their life and their memory.
