Funeral Etiquette Guides

Funeral etiquette is a sensitive and important subject. While death has become a something that no one wants to discuss, it is a reality we all must one day face.  Knowing what to say and what to do during this time of grief and loss, can help ease the stress surrounding the funeral or memorial services.

It’s important to keep in mind the fact that in addition to providing an opportunity to say farewell to a loved one, a funeral will give comfort to those who are left behind to grieve.

Additionally, family members and friends will find comfort being with each other, sharing stories, reading the condolence cards and writing the thank you notes.  Preparing yourself now for awkward moments where you may not know what to do or say will put everyone at ease.
