The funeral service represents our instinctive wish to honor our dead and comfort the bereaved. It also symbolizes the beliefs of a culture, its hopes, its ideals, its spiritual concepts.
The modern funeral has many dimensions. It can involve religious, social, fraternal, civic, and military organizations. It is affected by local, state, and federal laws and regulations. But most important, the funeral helps the bereaved adjust to an abrupt change in their lives.
