The funeral is the final rite of passage being seen as the final stage in a period of transition following death and as a climax of days of preparation by the bereaved. The funeral serves to acknowledge formally the occurrence of the death with family and friends saying their final farewell to a loved one. In addition, it provides an opportunity for communal support for those left behind.
