Coming together after the loss of a loved one is an essential part of the healing process. Frequently, families don't see the value of having a service and choose to omit it from their selected services. Often times they regret this decision, and we don't want you to make this same mistake.
Understanding grief and how to begin the healing process can be difficult. Taking the easy route may seem best when you are struggling through the early stages of grief, however, it is necessary for the future of you, your family and your friends to have the opportunity to heal.
Acknowledging your loss with family and friends through a funeral service gives everyone the opportunity to express their emotions, share memories and find comfort through the support of all who attend. We at Modell Funeral Home can help you create a personalized funeral ceremony that expresses the individuality and unique traits of your loved one. We are here to assist you in creating a service that will both heal hearts and honor the life of your loved one.
When burial has been selected, typically ceremonies are designed with the casket in mind. Traditionally families participate in a viewing followed by a funeral service in a church. This option though, is not your only choice.
The term cremation simply refers to the way in which you have chosen to handle the remains of your loved one. Selecting cremation does not limit in any way how you choose to celebrate the life of your loved one. We sincerely recommend having a funeral or memorial service, to allow family and friends to take part in this essential step of the healing process. Personalized memorial services allow memories to be shared and the life of your loved one to be reminisced. Just as with a funeral service, there is no limit as to how you honor your loved one's life. We are here to answer your questions and bring peace to any concerns that you may have.
