A graveside service is our final chance to say goodbye as we see our loved ones off on their journey to the afterlife and to collect ourselves as we continue our journey here, without them. The service is meant to give us comfort, each according to their faith, and to assure us that we paid them proper respect to our loved ones. Another purpose of a graveside service is to bless the eternal resting place of our loved ones. Creating a sacred space out of the burial place is the role of a clergy member and only after that will the body be committed to the ground, mausoleum, or crypt.
A graveside service gives us the chance to pause and recall that life is temporary and to hold on to the elements of our religious traditions that give us comfort when facing that reality. As it says in Ecclesiastes, “ To everything there is a season; A time to be born and a time to die. At a funeral, and most poignantly at the graveside service, memories of our loved one and the grief of losing them occupy equal parts in our memories and hearts. Very little except time can take the sting out of losing someone we hold dear but knowing we gave them a respectful and love-filled farewell can help and we at Harmony Funeral Homes are proud to facilitate those precious and sacred moments for you and your family.
