YOUTH AND FUNERALS | Funeral Nation 109
The death of a loved one is a painful and often overwhelming experience at any age, but for children, it may be confusing and scary if they are not given honest information or are left out of the funeral process.
Watch Funeral Service Foundation Executive Director Danelle O’Neill share their new children’s initiative!
Funeral service professionals provide some of the first support to families after the death of a loved one and can provide guidance specifically for children, as well. Using the Youth & Funerals booklet developed by the Funeral Service Foundation, we will explore how to explain death to children, ways to include them in the memorialization and how to prepare them for the funeral service.
