Bringing together family and friends after a loved one passes away gives them an opportunity to find comfort, support and a proper venue where they can share memories and express their feelings about the departed and about death itself. A funeral or memorial service helps those close to the loved one to accept the reality, inevitability and finality of death. They also present the family and its guests with the opportunity to pay their final respects to the deceased and to celebrate his or her life and accomplishments. Most importantly, funerals and memorial services pave the way for healthy healing after great loss.
A family is able to tailor the event to reflect the individuality of the loved one. They can decide the décor, serve the favorite dishes of the deceased, play his or her favorite music and display memorabilia representing the loved one’s interests, hobbies, lifestyle and passions. The family is also in control of when and where the ceremony takes place. Sagel Bloomfield Danzansky Goldberg Funeral Care, Inc. offers families a beautiful and spacious setting for memorializing their departed, but families are, of course, free to choose a more unique location to hold the gathering. A family uses its discretion in determining what prayers, passages or hymns will be recited, if any. The funeral professionals can add special elements to the service such as personalized printed materials, a moving tribute video and the release of doves, butterflies or balloons.
In addition to suggestions of ways to pay homage to a loved one, the funeral directors of Sagel Bloomfield Danzansky Goldberg Funeral Care Inc. also offer families guidance in making the decision to inter or to cremate. Oftentimes, the family is already clear on this point, or the deceased made their preference known. If not, the choice may be difficult for surviving family members. The funerals directors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide assistance with this and all other matters related to the final arrangements for a loved one.
