There are lots of things you will have to do when a loved one passes away. You have to make sure their needs are met and that could be your priority. You will want to get their death certificate secured and talk to funeral homes in Phoenix, AZ about picking them up, transporting them to their facilities, and caring for them as you figure out what you need to do next. While funeral services are certainly an expense, there are reasons you might feel they are important to you and to your family members. Here are a few such reasons.
Family Might Need It
No matter what you feel yourself about services, your family members might need those services to get the closure they need and to say a final goodbye. Perhaps you were at the hospital, holding your loved one’s hand daily as they fought and succumbed to death. You got the closure you needed, and you said goodbye. But others didn’t and they might need those services to help them do so. By having a service, everyone in your loved one’s life can get what they need.
It’s not a good idea to grieve along and one wonderful way to share your grief with people who love you, and who knew your loved one, is to have final services. You are gathering the people who loved them together and through hugs, shared memories, and just time spent together, you are able to share your own grief and recognize that there are a lot of people that cared about your loved one—and a lot of people who still care about you.
Even if you don’t feel like you need closure or to say goodbye, it might still feel good to honor your loved one’s life in a special way. You want to mark their death with something special and gathering the people who cared about them most, sharing memories, and talking about a life well-lived is a nice way to give them the final sendoff they deserve. You can play music they loved, share stories about them, and just remember what it was that made them who they were.
As you decide what you want to do in terms of services with funeral homes in Phoenix, AZ, you will need to consider your feelings on the issue.
