The Purpose of Ceremony

Funerals are as much for the living as for the deceased.  A ceremony should help you:

  • Acknowledge the reality of death
  • Move toward the pain of facing a loss
  • Celebrate the life of the one who died
  • Receive support from others

Some ways we do this are:

Help choose the casket - a casket that reflects the deceased's personality, life-style, religion, profession, organizational affiliation or hobby can enhance the experience.

Help select the music - Music is an important part of any funeral ceremony. One purpose of the music is to help us access our feelings, which can be quite mixed at this time.  We have a wide range of recorded music or can help you in contacting a musician such as a classical guitarist or organist for the perfect musical accompaniment.

Video Tributes- pictures can sometimes  say what words cannot at this difficult time. Video Tributes are  often used at the time of the funeral and may include photographs, video clips and favourite musical seletions.  At Bardal Funeral Home we can help you create a special video tribute on DVD which can be taken home by the family as a special keepsake of the service.

Memories - Memories are the most precious legacy we have after someone dies. Some creative ways for sharing memories at funerals include setting up a memory table and picture boards, or simply asking friends and family members to informally share stories during the ceremony.
