Get in touch with us for funeral planning support.



What Are Funerals, and Why Do We Have Them?

The specifics of what goes on in a funeral service differ from culture to culture. However, the main commonality among funerals around the world is that they are all services held in honor of someone who has recently passed on. In the United States, although they vary by region, funerals are typically formal, structured services that focus on the living memorializing the deceased and reflecting on their life. Funerals are most traditionally held in a church or religious building, but recently, families have become more creative in the planning and execution of funeral services.


We hold funerals as a coping mechanism to help us to process the loss of a loved one. Funeral services are a traditional part of society that keeps us bonded together as families and communities. Through funeral services, we are able to offer support to those who are mourning, as well as processing our own emotions.
