Funeral Customs

Predating modern Homo sapiens, funeral traditions are over 300,000 years old – they are as old as human culture itself. In it’s essence, a funeral is a ceremony for celebrating, respecting, sanctifying, and remembering the life of a person who has passed. In origin, the word ‘funeral’ comes from the Latin ‘funus’, which had a wide variety of meanings.
