Why hold a funeral?
Since the beginning of time, tribes and communities have held rituals of different types for their dead. Each culture has their own beliefs and rituals due to cultural, religious or ethnic backgrounds. Funerals are a very important step in the grieving process. The absence of this can worsen what is already a very difficult time. The failure to properly grieve could leave you, other family members and friends feeling isolated and unable to move on to the next step of the healing process.
