A memorial service is similar to a funeral service in many ways. The main difference is that at a funeral, the body is present as a focal point for the service, whether in a closed or open casket, but at a memorial service, the body is not present. Usually, a framed portrait or an urn serves as the focal point at a memorial service.Having some sort of ceremony or opportunity to mourn the loss allows you to acknowledge the reality of the situation and serves as a good starting marker on the road to healing. But memorial services aren’t only for those who are cremated. Many people choose a direct burial and have the memorial service afterward, at the burial site, church, or funeral chapel.
