Arranging A Funeral Service And Saying Farewell Words

A funeral ceremony is a way of saying goodbye to a loved one who has passed. They can be highly personalized to reflect the individual's life. The personnel at the mortuary can help you to make plans that are an appropriate reflection of the individual.

When planning the service, consider the music you will use. You may opt for live music, through voice or instruments. Other options include the use of recorded music, which is growing in popularity.

There is usually a eulogist or officiant for the service. This person may be a clergy member, family friend or even a member of the family. The family is generally responsible to communicate with the individual in planning the service. In some cases, families need help in contacting a person who can do this job. Most mortuaries offer assistance. Keep in mind that some religious ceremonies may include specifics as to what is included in the services.

If your loved one was a member of a fraternal organization or has a history of military service, it may be appropriate to include these groups. Some organizations offer specific services tailored to the organization. VFW groups may also assist and present a flag to the survivors.

The family can also decide about the viewing and whether they want it to be a part of a service. While considered traditional in some locations, it is not in others. No matter what the local customs, this is truly a decision the family can make.

Saying goodbye to a loved one who has passed is often difficult emotionally, but, for many, an important part of the grieving process. Plans for a funeral ceremony should be discussed before the loved one passes if possible. This allows you to plan a service you know your loved one would have approved.
