Poetry Quotes For Funerals

What is the purpose of a funeral? Mortuary science teaches about the importance of an open casket so that loved ones can see that the deceased has moved on. The five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. The funeral, then is a way for the mind to conceptualize the death of a loved one. The funeral is also an opportunity to reflect upon the vacuum that the loss of one human being can leave in the world. It is a chance to remember how a spark of divine energy made the world a different place.
