When I was a kid, I often heard my grandma or some elderly say: “One day when I die, you could simply bury me or cremate me. There is no need to spend a tremendous amount of money for a grand funeral.” But is this the case?
Recently, one of the bereaved family members came to me and said: “Deborah, I really appreciate you and your team very much. I did not choose the wrong company. Although my family did not spend a huge amount of money, your company managed to send off my father in an honorable way. The memorial service and the funeral wake were so beautiful. Everyone who came to the funeral wake was full of praise for your company! You really make my father got a lot of face (你让我爸爸很有面子).”
I was very touched by the sentence, “You really make my father got a lot of face (你让我爸爸很有面子)”!
At another memorial service night, a grandma came to me and said that our service was very heartwarming, and the whole funeral wake was elegant and glorious.
She asked me for my business card and asked about the approximate price and the funeral process. She said: “I will give your business card to my son. I hope that when I pass on, you will be the one who will handle my funeral.”
Before leaving the wake, the grandma kept looking back and giving me thumbs-up, saying: “What a good job! The Late sister is very blessed! What a beautiful wake!”
Looking at the grandma’s distant receding figure, I felt very moved.
Regardless of men or women, people of all ages look forward to having a beautiful wedding and a decent funeral. Especially the elderly.
If what I heard when I was a child was true, that the elderly do not care about their funeral, the bereaved family members in these two incidents would not have such reactions towards the funeral wake.
If what I heard when I was a child was true, my grandma would not have saved money for her after-death matters.
I believe that the ultimate wish of every elderly is to have a funeral that is simple but not casual. It doesn’t need to be grand, but they would expect the funeral to be decent and warm.
It is also the motivation and goal that Passion has always been moving forward. It is to do our best to prepare a decent and elegant funeral for the deceased and send them off in a respectful and honorable way.
I thank God for giving us this opportunity so that we have the honor to serve the bereaved families and Lord Jesus with our team in such way.
All glory to God, Amen!
