Ideas Of A Funeral Ceremony And Saying Last Words

When a loved one dies, the funeral ceremony offers a formal way of saying goodbye. These services can often be personalized in order to reflect the individual's life. You can find help through the personnel at the mortuary who prepare the body.

Music is often an important part of services. You may choose someone to sing or play an instrument live. The use of prerecorded music has become very common in many areas. In addition, the mortuary may have an organist on staff.

Most services include an officiant or eulogist. In the past, it was common for a member of the clergy to fill this role; however, today there is more freedom in who will lead the service. The family generally communicates directly with those responsible for conducting the service. Some religious groups provide more direction in the manner of conducting the services than others. If you want a religious service, but are unsure who you should contact, the mortuary staff can provide assistance.

If your family member was a member of a fraternal group or in the military, these groups may take part in the service. Some fraternal groups offer services that are specific to the organization. Veterans groups may provide a final playing of taps, a 21 gun salute and present a flag to the survivors.

The decision to have a viewing before or after the service is at the digression of the family. In some locations, the viewing is considered traditional, while in others it is not. Regardless of local tradition, the family has the final say in these regards.

The process of saying goodbye is difficult. For many, it is an important part of the process of grieving the loss. If possible, talk with loved ones before their death to determine what they want in terms of a funeral ceremony. This makes it easier to plan a service you know your lost loved one would approve.
