A memorial service celebrates the life of the deceased.
A memorial also plays a vital role in the grieving process by providing the bereaved with atangible way to focus on remembering and reflecting. Memorials are often held in a church, a fraternal hall, or other appropriate location, and take place a few days or a couple of weeks after the passingof a loved one.
When it comes to funeral terminology, the most commonly confusedterms are Funeral Service and Memorial Service.
A Funeral Service is a service held to honor the deceased with their body present in a casket. A Memorial Service is a service held to honor the deceased with their body not present.
A Memorial Service is sometimes the best option, perhaps due to scheduling challenges in bringing relatives together for the ceremony.
