Why do we have funerals?
According to Dr. Alan Wolfelt, Ph.D., of the Center for Loss and Life Transition, “For thousands of years, funerals have been a means of expressing our beliefs, thoughts and feelings about the death of someone we love. The funeral ceremony allows us to say good-bye provides a social support system for us and other friends and family members allows us to search for the meaning of life and death offers continuity and hope for the living. Meaningful funeral ceremonies are rites of passage. They help us move from life before the death to life after the death. The funeral provides a safe place to affirm the worth of our relationship with the person who died and express our feelings of loss.”
Choosing the Service You Want
We know that each family has its own needs, traditions, and customs. These are important in planning a remembrance of what was important in an individual’s life. Our caring staff listens with great sensitivity, paying attention to the smallest details that can make a service meaningful in a special, personal way. Consideration for every detail is a hallmark of a Grimes Funeral Chapels service. Our funeral directors treat each family as a personal friend and help guide them in planning the service they want and need for their loved one. Grimes Funeral Chapels has firmly established itself as “The Leader in Professional Funeral Service” because of our funeral directors and a single word-commitment. The choices you have, which are as personal as you wish to make them, can be made with confidence and without undue stress. Our professional staff approaches your personal wishes for a funeral service with awareness and understanding. Sound decisions are based on having enough good information with which to work. It is our sincere hope that the information our directors provide will satisfy certain questions, stimulate you to ask others, and enable you to make wise choices regarding funeral services.
