In fact, when first facing the death of a loved one, it may seem easier to just quickly make funeral services arrangements with as little thought as possible you can move on. However, studies have shown that meaningful, thoughtful, personalized funeral services, can actually help the grieving process and make you feel better about the loss.
Mental health professionals and grief specialists alike agree that meaningful funeral services help people cope, accept, and eventually move past the loss of a family member or loved one. There are a whole host of research studies that show that funeral services help honor the deceased’s life and aid the living in recognizing and celebrating that life. Furthermore, properly planned and executed meaningful funeral services provide an opportunity for families and friends to express feelings, connect with one another, and move towards healing as a unit.
But how do you plan a meaningful service? Think about it this way: people always say that relationships are the most important part of life, so the best way to have a meaningful funeral service is to have focus on the relationships the deceased had with friends and family. Take a moment to remember special events, fond memories, or everyday moments that embody what made the deceased’s relationships special. Use these memories to enhance your funeral services so they can best honor the deceased. They can serve as inspiration for special and personalized funeral attributes.
