Funerals have been around for a long time. This service is typically held in a funeral home or church. A funeral service typically consists of hymns, scripture readings, and prayers. For many, a funeral provides closure after a loved one's passing and is a great way to honor that loved one's life.
A visitation, also known as a viewing, is held before a funeral, often the night before or the day of. This is a time for people to pay their respects to the deceased and the family. Caskets can be open or closed. This process is important for all who were touched by the life of the deceased, giving all a chance to say their goodbyes.
A graveside service is typically held after or in place of a funeral service. This is held at the gave site before the burial of the casket or urn. This service is typically smaller than a funeral service. It often consists of readings, prayers, memories, and final thoughts.
