Celebrating a Life
How Families and friends benefit from a funeral service.
Only a few years ago, most funerals took place in a church with the body present, followed by a burial in a local cemetery. With the popularity of cremation and local alternative (store front) cremation services promoting direct cremation with no celebration or service, gradually trends change. Families and friends are now reporting back that this experience often leaves them suffering in grief because they are not able to say a proper goodbye. Yes, they may have honoured the deceased wishes, but this may not have been the families wishes.
Families are once again seeking the help of a full service funeral home to find that middle ground to celebrate a life. The main value of a funeral is the emotional support a community provides. The communities of Essex and it's surrounding areas have proven over the years to be the most supportive to families during a time of loss.
Today people are moving away from ceremony and traditions and we are forgetting the good in traditions. A funeral service brings people together, strengthens a family and provides a proper venue to express ourselves and share. Families are looking for a healthy middle ground. That's why it's important to select a full service funeral home.
At Reid Funeral Home & Reception Centre we offer a wide range of options that allow families to celebrate a life. This may not mean going back to the traditional funeral of 30 years ago, but exploring the healthy middle ground that is appropriate for your family. Our funeral directors are skilled at listening to your concerns and providing practical and appropriate suggestions based on past experience and new trends.
Families today are only limited by their creativity. Call us and let us help walk you through the process without any obligation.
