Somber Funeral Home Myths

When you think of a Richardson, TX funeral home, do you see a group of people huddled together as they cry and mourn the loss of a loved one? There are instances where that scene might play out at a funeral home, but funerals homes don’t always look like that. Here are a few somber myths about funeral homes, dispelled, to help you understand more about what they do.  

Myth: All Funerals Are Sad Events 

Funerals mark the end of someone’s life and there’s often sadness surrounding death. However, not every funeral or memorial service is somber and sad. In fact, celebrations of life are quite the opposite. If you have ever attended a celebration of life, you know that they include smiling, laughter, shared memories, and a celebratory atmosphere. The family members are gathered together to celebrate a life well lived instead of to mourn a loss.  

Myth: Funeral Homes Are Scary 

There are a lot of unknowns revolving around death and that’s why many people see death, and the businesses that revolve around it, to be rather off-putting or downright scary. But when you take a closer look at a funeral home, you will see that it is actually filled with compassionate people who deeply want to help others in their time of need. The spaces are usually quite bright and cheery and the people are friendly and helpful. There’s nothing at all scary about that.  

Myth: Funeral Home Services Are All The Same 

There are some standards that go into certain funeral services. If your family chooses to have a funeral, for example, there will likely be a visitation, a funeral, and a burial service. But there are plenty of options that go into a service of any kind. If you have a celebration of life, there are even more things you can do. The sky’s the limit as to how creative you can get, what you can include, and in what ways you can honor your loved one. Each individual who passes on is unique and honoring their memory should be as well. Funeral homes may have packages to offer to their clients, but each package is completely customizable to suit every family’s needs.
