Funerals are not pleasant occasions for anyone, especially those whose loved ones have just passed away. Funerals are usually a time of grief and may be difficult for those who lost their loved ones. Nevertheless, it is usually a standard procedure to give the deceased a fitting send off in terms of a wake service.
A wake or funeral service will require a funeral program where the order of service is listed out for the audience to follow.
A funeral service template may contain the following pieces of information:
* Funeral Service for
* Deceased Name
* Date of funeral service
* Time and Venue
* Presiding Facilitator
* Order of Program
The above information informs the attendees of the funeral service what to expect of a funeral service. A funeral service is usually quite short. Some funeral services of certain races could last a few days for the last rites to be performed.
The Presiding facilitator is usually a religious authority who is licensed to conduct the last rites for the deceased by law. The order of program may contain the following:
* Call to order of funeral service
* Welcome address
* Brief introduction of deceased to attendees
* Meditation or Prayer
* Message (in religious circles)
* Last rites action
Depending on the ethnic and religion, there will be differences to a funeral service. Whatever the race or religion, all funeral services should be respected.
