Ceremonies held prior to a burial or cremation are important. A funeral or memorial service provides a place for family and friends to gather for support, to acknowledge the death, and to reminisce. It provides a time to celebrate a life, acknowledge accomplishments, and helps to create a focal point from which the healing process can begin.
