By remembering the day is a celebration of their life and a chance for everyone who loved that person to say goodbye.

Just let it all out. Cry, get angry, talk to family members, friends, etc.. It will be difficult, grief is never easy, loss is never easy, but it is absolutely survivable. Having other people around you who are also grieving at the funeral will provide support and you will feel much better darling :)

You're strong and braver than you've ever thought of or known. It will be hard; you will miss them, you will cry, you might even break down countless times but you'll get up again; stronger than ever before. Go along with the flow of life until you feel it's okay.

Funerals are hard. Just realize that all people grieve differently, and don't try to force yourself to act the way you think you're "supposed to." That only makes it harder. Embrace your feelings, and realize others there care just like you do.

I was able to get through the funeral of my loved one by not looking at the funeral as something sad. I looked at the funeral as a homecoming celebration. I also invited family and friends to wear other colors besides black to the occasion.

The way I get through funerals is try to remember the happy times of those that I love. Lots and lots of breathing also helps. Afterwards you might want to look into support groups if needed and talking here on 7cups.
