Burial Or Graveside Services, IL

There are no fixed rules that govern a funeral. Anything that holds meaning for the family or the deceased should be incorporated into the service. Those important to the departed and the family who have special memories or thoughts to share that shed light into the life of the loved one should be given the opportunity to speak. Funerals are highly emotional events, and all those close to the deceased and his or her family should be involved. Objects and mementos that were significant to the departed can be at the ceremony, as these things help to make it more memorable and heart-felt.

Many families choose to have a comprehensive traditional funeral service including a viewing, funeral and following burial. After the interment, family and friends often come together to eat at the repast and continue to think and talk about the loved one.

Another choice that a family can make is to hold a graveside service. Frequently following the visitation period at the funeral chapel, the remains in their casket are transported to the cemetery where a graveside ceremony is conducted. After that, the casketed remains are buried.
