Losing a loved one is a monumental experience, accompanied by a range of emotions and followed by a variety of important decisions. Among those decisions is how your loved one will be laid to rest. This blog post discusses the differences between a coffin and a casket, when each is appropriate, and how to decide which is right for your loved one.
Funerals are rarely a happy or joyful time in our lives, and can even be extremely stressful. As a funeral guest, you want to do everything possible to honor the individual that has passed by providing comfort and solace to their family. This can leave you in a position of discomfort, where you are unsure which actions or words could be taken the wrong way. Instead of avoiding funerals, take this time to learn a bit more about funeral etiquette and finding the right words to support your friends and family members during this difficult time. Sometimes doing the right thing means waiting to express your feelings at a time when the family members are better able to control their emotions or sending a heartfelt note after the service.
