Unfortunately, death is a fact of life and there simply is no way to avoid it. There is a "time to be born and a time to die." When someone dies, we hold a funeral, a word related to a Sanskrit term meaning smoke, which refers to an ancient custom of cremating the dead.
Today we also cremate our dead, but the most common disposition is to hold a funeral or ceremony and bury our dead under or above ground. Through a funeral, we pay our last respects and celebrate the life of a departed loved one.
The cost and the details involved in a funeral can be overwhelming. By planning a funeral service or memorial service ahead of time gives one peace of mind and eases the emotional and financial strain of those left behind.
