The tradition of coming together after the loss of a loved one, to experience the communal healing power of ceremony, has long included the sharing of food. No matter whether it’s a sit down dinner, or simply a selection of savories and sweets; this time of sharing involves the emotional and spiritual nourishment of fellowship. Sharing stories and memories; the giving of much-needed support, in a relaxed environment, can be the most therapeutic part of a funeral for a grieving family.
