What purpose does a funeral serve?

The funeral allows family and friends to remember and honor their loved one in a special way. It serves as a central gathering place for family and friends to give emotional support to one another and encourages mourners to face the pain of their loss and express their thoughts and feelings. The funeral also celebrates the deceased’s life, and not their passing. The funeral service allows a time of remembrance and celebration, and allows the healing process to begin. The funeral can take place at The Marlan Gary Funeral Home, your place of worship or any facility large enough to accommodate your family and friends.
