2. A funeral provides an opportunity for friends and family to take leave of a loved one in a ceremonial manner.
3. A funeral provides comfort to friends and family.
4. A funeral provides a confirmation of life to those who attend the funeral – to show them the door after the service is over, and to tell them: “Now go home and LIVE!”
