How to Decide on a Funeral Service
It can be difficult for Darmstadt, Indiana residents to navigate after a loss of a loved one. It’s a terrible process that many people must go through at least once in their lives. Especially when having to decide on whether or not a funeral service is right. With such sad passings comes responsibilities. After a loved one passes away, family members and friends usually step in to take care of things like property, mortgages, personal possessions, bills and even wills. This can make anyone stressed let alone those struggling through the loss of a loved one.
When it comes to choosing between a burial or a cremation, or which funeral home to choose from, it’s important to know what best suits your family and what your loved one would have wanted. If it’s clear that your loved one wanted to be cremated rather than buried, then you don’t have to worry about choosing for them. However, if they didn’t have a preference or if their preference was never made known to you, it can be trickier.
You can opt for cremation with services such as a memorial, or cremation with a burial or direct cremation, which is just cremating the deceased and receiving their cremains. You can also choose to have a funeral service. What makes a funeral service different than cremation or a memorial, or just a direct burial is the viewing of the deceased. Today, many people struggle with the choice between having a traditional funeral service or not. Or whether they should have a funeral service held in a religious environment such as a church or someplace else. While we can’t make the decision for you, when can help aid you in the decision. If you’re loved one was adamant about having a funeral service at a specific place such as a church, synagogue or mosque, then it should be an easy decision. Sometimes family members complicate the decision on where to hold the funeral service and if there should be one. However, sometimes, the choice is quite simple.
Having a funeral service is not only a way to heal wounds but it’s also a way to seek closure. Rather than not acknowledging the passing of a loved one, not celebrating their life and not spending time with those who are supportive and grieving as well, it can be difficult. And it can make healing much longer.

Thank you for mentioning how funeral services can help provide you with closure. My brother has had a difficult time coming to terms with our father’s recent passing, and I am worried that his lack of acceptance may affect the rest of his family. Maybe we should find a funeral home so that we can give our father a proper funeral.

I agree with what you said that having a funeral service is a way for family and friends to seek closure over a loved one’s death. My sister’s daughter recently died because of leukemia. She doesn’t want to have a funeral because she’s in denial of her child’s death. I’ll speak to her later and offer to help with the funeral service planning. Thanks for this.
