A ritual is often socio-religious driven which is carried out by the bereaved within a social context of friends, relatives, and neighbors. It incorporates social interaction of storytelling. Most importantly, storytelling can be effectively realized as part of a memorial ritual event, in tribute to show respect, gratitude, affection, or praise, and is focused on support for the survivors. When we hear about death, we tend to gather to provide emotional and social support that is directed to the bereaved family, and to each other, and it is in this setting where we share our stories. Our assembling as a community reassures us that we are part of a larger whole, thereby strengthening our individual lives. The wider community responds with sympathy to the occasion and support for the bereaved. When the inevitable happens, contact Fond Remembrance to assist you in the creation of a fitting Ritual for your loved one. Planning ahead . . . We are here to help!
