It is common to tailor a funeral service to the personality of the deceased. Favorite music, treasured belongings, pictures, and mementos can all play a major role in making the final tribute fitting and moving.
It is common for the clergy to lead the funeral service, graveside service and offer support to family and friends. It is also appropriate to have a few friends or family members share thoughts with those attending the service.
Earth burial and above-ground entombment are final disposition options for traditional services. For an earth burial, a burial plot in a cemetery must be purchased or many times a family plot exists where husbands, wives, children, brothers, and sisters can all be laid to rest.
