What To Expect During The Funeral
Not everyone is aware of how they should interact with people and what they should say during a funeral service. It is crucial to know what to expect during a funeral. It will help you know what to say and how to behave without offending any person there. This is what you can expect:
- It is necessary to arrive at the funeral on time. Make sure that you keep enough of a buffer for things like traffic jams etc. when you are heading out to the funeral. In case you do arrive late, you may find that everyone is already seated. In this case, find a place at the back of the venue. Do not interrupt the funeral service in any way.
- Everyone expresses their grief differently. While some are very vocal and expressive, others may seem unaffected and very calm. You should never judge how a person is expressing their grief when you attend a funeral. If someone is too vocal or expressive in their pain, and you can't deal with it, move out of the venue for some time.
- When you are speaking with the grieving family members at the funeral service, make sure that you are interacting appropriately. Provide a patient ear and offer your condolences. Observe their body language and talk to them only if you feel that they are inclined to speak.
- Do not expect everyone to open up and be very vocal about how they are feeling. Being there for the person in their time of grief is the best way to console the person and support them when they are vulnerable.
