Mourning for a loved one when you cannot attend funeral services
Losing a loved one is always a painful experience. Many people who lose a person they love describe their emotions as too painful and complex to describe with words. Healing from loss is a process that takes time. For healing to start, we need a moment of closure. One of the functions of a funeral service is to provide this moment.
