Helping Families Connect, Honor & Remember
Value of the Funeral
Acknowledges that a life has been lived. Allows mourners to remember and honor their loved one in a special way. Serves as a central gathering place for family and friends to give emotional and physical support to one another. Provides closure for the bereaved. Initiates the grieving process. Confirms the reality and finality of the death. Encourages mourners to face the pain of their loss and express their thoughts and feelings. Helps survivors to better cope with their grief and enables them to move forward with their lives.
The midnight hour, the darkest hour that human grief may know, sends forth its hurried summons, asks me to come, I go.
I know not when the bell may toll, I know not where the bow may fall, I only know that I must go in answer to the call. Perhaps a friend, perhaps unknown, tis fate that turns the wheel, the tangled skein of human life winds slowly on the reel.
And I? I'm the undertaker, "cold-blooded you'll hear them say, "Trained to the shock and chill of death, with a heart that's cold and grey".
Trained, that's what they call it, how little they know the rest, I'm human, and know the sorrow that throbs in the aching breast. Author Unknown
