Rituals and ceremonies help each family express their deepest feelings and thoughts about some of life’s most important events. A funeral is no different. Most funerals help to fulfill these three things:
1) Funeral services allow us to honor and pay tribute to the individual who has died. Together family and friends can remember the life of their loved one.
2) Funeral services serve as a final goodbye to the physical presence of a loved one in our daily lives. It helps mark a difficult change that we will have to accept.
3) Funeral services serve as an opportunity to support each other. Funerals act as a central gathering place for people to mourn the loss together. Grief is very difficult to deal with, but dealing with it on your own makes it even worse.
One of our main missions at Richard Funeral Home is giving your loved one a final tribute they deserve. Contrary to common belief, funeral services are not all the same.
