The funeral is a time to recognize and honor the life of a loved one.
Funerals are an expression of the loss of a loved one. The funeral ritual can be personalized to allow for your own family traditions and beliefs. Family and friends gathering together, not only to say goodbye to their loved one, allows them to show their support for each other.
As a part of the grieving process, the viewing is a very important part. It can be a reassurance that your loved one is no longer suffering. However, the viewing is a very personal choice and you need to do what is comfortable for your situation.
Every family is different. The visitation, funeral or memorial service, and the final disposition play a role in helping the bereaved family through their grief. The staff of Kearney Funeral Home, Inc. is dedicated to assisting you through this trying time.
People don't like to think about death, let alone plan for it. Discussing one's mortality is an extremely uncomfortable topic for most people but, it is something that should be addressed.
By pre-planning your funeral, you are making your wishes known. Since it is not at a time of great stress and grief, you can take the time to gather information that will be needed and decide what is right for your particular situation. It also relieves your family of having to make these important decisions, financial and otherwise, at a stressful time when they may not be thinking clearly.
The whole ritual of a funeral or memorial service isn't for the deceased, it is for the living. Allowing family members and friends to openly grieve and support one another, is an important aspect of the grieving process.
We are available to discuss this with you. In our meeting we can go over as much, or as little, as you wish. It can be as simple as getting biographical information or as detailed as selecting a particular casket or urn.
Kearney Funeral Home, Inc. also offers ways to pre-fund your funeral arrangements. Our goal is to help you make the best choice for you and your financial situation. Everything that we discuss is strictly confidential.
