Funerals are as much for our loved ones who have passed away as it is for our own closure and healing process. Different people have certain traditions or customs with which they conduct funerals. But at times, loved ones may have wishes on how they want their funerals to be conducted and there are not-for-profit funeral services that help them fulfill these wishes.
Jenny Briscoe-Hough, founder and director of not-for-profit funeral service Tender Funerals, says that everyone should tread their own path when it comes to farewelling someone they love.
"People should be involved as much or as little as they wish in the process of saying goodbye," she says. "It's not just about a funeral. It starts from when someone dies, through to transporting their body to the mortuary, and all the other aspects.
The family of the deceased loved one has the right to be involved in the process and grieve in their own way. And these three stories show how it could benefit the families as much as it does their loved ones who have gone.
