Managing funerals for people missing at sea
Funeral and burial ceremonies are important to the living in various ways. They help the living to come to terms with the reality that their loved ones are there no more. They bring people together, something that reduces the emotional burden of the family members, relatives, and close friends of the deceased. A funeral also gives a meaning to the life of the deceased; without a funeral, people would never know what kind of a person the deceased was, what he or she achieved in life, or how the deceased made an impact on other people's life.

My uncle disappeared one day after rock fishing. It was really hard for my aunt because there was not a body to bury, but it was pretty clear that he had been swept out to sea. It turns out that this happens a lot, especially with sailors and people who spend a lot of time on boats. The funeral home organised a beautiful memorial service so that we could have a chance to say goodbye. It was a really beautiful ceremony and very true to his spirit and personality. This blog is all about ceremonies for people who are missing and has tips from experts as well as people who've gone through the experience of losing a loved one.
