WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST

Celebration of Life

Celebration of Life

A funeral service is, more often than not, a life event that is completely unplanned, and what’s more, they must by necessity take place in a time when we are least equipped to make very important decisions. It is crucial to us at Lagoon View Funeral Services that we host a fitting tribute to the your loved ones while cherishing the good memories and creating more, so that you, your family, friends and other loved ones are able to remember both the life of your loved one and the funeral itself as fondly as possible.

Māori Funerals (tangihanga)

Māori Funeral traditions have changed little since pre-colonial times. The influence of European culture is scarcely felt, Māori funeral processes instead continuing to hark back to the olden days – only minor updates have been made, with most practices remaining true to the roots and origins of the Māori people. For the reason that the tangihanga is the least changed tradition since the arrival of Pakeha, as well as other factors both cultural and practical, out of all Māori ceremonies the tangihanga is seen by many as the most important.

The Service

Ceremonies are an important part of our lives. Ceremony is used to mark such important rites of passage as anniversaries, coming of age, getting married, being born and of course dying. No matter what faith or nationality, each and all of us have our own rituals, rites and ceremonies that are performed at the time of one’s passing, and they all are carried out with the same intent – to commemorate, honour and bless the departed. We are here to help you through the most difficult of times with empathy, tact and discretion.

A funeral service is one such ceremony, where the family and friends of one recently passed say goodbye. We acknowledge, remember and celebrate their life. Lagoon View Funeral Services will see your loved ones off with care and respect, and cater to your wishes so as to make their funeral both personal and memorable.

The organisation of and taking part in funeral services aids the bereaved in the grieving process by giving focus to the loss of your loved one. These services offer support to family and friends at a time when they are most vulnerable. Through the gathering together and sharing of stories, playing of music that meant something to the departed, reading verses, singing together, communally looking at photos and videos and reminiscing about your time together, we begin in a healthy way the process of accepting their death and saying goodbye.

We will assist you in seeing your loved ones off, respectfully and with great care, while catering to your needs and wishes so as to make their funeral both personal and memorable.

FAQs

FAQs
When the wishes of the deceased are known they are usually followed. If there is a will, the executor and/or the family will generally make that decision. Depending on which part of the country you live in, there may be considerable cost differences between burial and cremation. Your funeral director can advise you on the options.
There is ‘no one size fits all’ about funerals these days. There are many opportunities to personalise the service and to make it one of significance. Your Funeral Director can advise on options and ideas based on their experience and knowledge of the practicalities involved. The content of the actual service is usually worked out between the family and the minister or celebrant. Please discuss your ideas and requests with your Funeral Director.
Many people who were hesitant at first have been helped in the grieving process by spending some time with the body of the deceased before the funeral. It is important to be able to say goodbye and to fully accept the finality of death. While the experience varies for everyone, it is an opportunity to spend time with your loved one and perhaps leave small mementos such as – gifts, cards, letters, or other meaningful items. We offer private and comfortable viewing facilities in all of our locations for you and your family to say goodbye to your loved one, or if you would prefer we may be able to arrange for their casket to be taken to your home in the days prior to the funeral.
Children, like adults, need to go through a grieving process. Like adults, children learn that death is a part of life. Depending on the age of the child it is well worthwhile for parents or caregivers to talk with the children about death before it occurs. This helps to minimise the shock when it happens. The choice of whether children should attend the funeral may depend on the age of the child and the relationship with your loved one. In general we advise that children should attend.
