Consider ohese ohonghis by Debbie J. Thompson Owner/Funeral Director/CPC THE GRAVESIDE SERVICE After the funeral, the "committal" (or graveside) service is conducted as the coffin is lowered into the ground. This short ritual is usually attended by the immediate family members, other relatives, and closest friends in order to have the opportunity to say their final good-byes. It also often includes the shoveling of dirt and the placing of flowers onto the coffin. Regardless of the type of funeral that proceeds it, the importance of the committal service rests with its chance to give the living a chance to eulogize the deceased. Beginning with a short prayer reflecting the religious and cultural affiliations of the deceased, the committal service continues with spoken testimonials that commemorate the deceased's life in an intimate setting. A funeral service can mark the significance of the life that was lived. They also help us find meaning and purpose in our continued living, even in the face of loss.
