Reason for funeral
"A funeral is in essence a one time kind of support group to under gird and support the grieving persons. A funeral provides a conducive social environment for mourning (Leming & Dickinson, 2011 p.380). After the funeral is over with the grieving will really begin to hit you and probably always will around special occasions. There are great support groups that can help you cope if needed. "Hospice of Northwest Ohio provides an array of support groups and workshops to help people of all ages cope with the loss of a loved one. While some people may be afraid to join a group at first, we recommend they give it a try. Group members usually feel very comfortable giving and receiving support in the group with others who share similar concerns" (http://www.hospicenwo.org/grief-support/support-groups/).
