Absolutely. Regardless of whether you choose burial or cremation, a funeral or memorial service is a celebration of the life that has been lived. It offers family and friends the opportunity to pay tribute to their loved one as well as an opportunity to grieve in a supportive environment. You can have a ceremony with the urn present if the cremation has already taken place, or you can have a traditional funeral with visitation and viewing before the body is cremated if you desire.
