Memorial services have become more and more common in this country, taking the place of more formal funeral ceremonies.
While the service is usually held within a week of the death, it can be postponed for a long period of time for the sake of the family’s convenience. This may be the case especially if mourners must travel a great distance to attend. Some families decide to wait for a particularly meaningful holiday to hold the service.
The memorial service itself is more informal than a funeral, and people can mix and mingle and exchange recollections of the deceased. As in a funeral, this occasion is designed to:
- Honor the deceased
- Celebrate his or her life
- Bring people together for solace and comfort
