Posts about “Memorial service”

A memorial service is similar to a funeral, but with one main difference. At a funeral, the body is usually present, whether in an open casket or closed casket ceremony. For a memorial, the body is not present. Instead, there might be a framed portrait or an urn as the focal point. A memorial service is a way to pay tribute to the deceased. It’s an opportunity for the family to grieve together and mourn the loss. Planning a memorial service for yourself or a loved one is never easy, but having this chance to say farewell proves much-needed closure.
