Even with all our advancements in technology, there’s very little known about death. For several millennia, we have believed that there’s something after death because almost every culture in the world believes that the body might be temporary, but a soul is immortal. Regardless of what your personal beliefs might be on this matter, it’s important to say goodbye to a loved one who has passed away.The Importance of Saying Good-Bye: Before Death
Death doesn’t always come with a warning so many people don’t get a chance to say goodbye before a loved one has passed away. But most people do get a chance. If your loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness or is on their deathbed, you can use this opportunity to say farewell.
This benefits both family members and the ill individual. They get the comfort of seeing and speaking with their family and friends before they leave this life. You get the comfort of being there and talking to them face-to-face. This can help with the healing process, helping you bypass the denial aspect of grieving.The Importance of Saying Good-Bye: After Death
Many people don’t say goodbye before death because they don’t get an opportunity or are in denial. This can cause a lot of regrets down the line but it’s not entirely hopeless. You can say your farewell during a funeral or memorial service. Many psychologists consider funerals or memorials an important step in the healing process. It doesn’t just give you an opportunity to say your well-wishes but also accept this new change. Without a funeral, grieving individuals have no closure because they didn’t get a chance to bid adieu.
When you say farewell, you let go and close a chapter in your life. It’s not easy, but it is necessary. If you want to know more about funeral services, don’t hesitate to contact us at The Jerry Spears Company. Our team will be happy to help.
