If you are a funeral home owner, I’m sure you know the feeling of standing in a funeral home and witnessing the mourners in their own room. This is the only space in the area where I feel free to be myself and talk to anyone who wants to talk to me.
For more than 15 years, I have served as the chaplain at the Gay and Cih Assoc. Since then, I have been involved in a number of different functions and activities at the Assoc, including serving on the Board of Directors.
You can call me “Mr. Chaplain” but I prefer to be known as “Father of the Funeral Home” since I have a lot of experience with funerals and funerary services. I am a licensed funeral director, a licensed funeral director’s assistant, a funeral director’s assistant, a licensed officiatr, and a funeral director (and also a funeral director’s assistant).
In the past I have been a funeral director, a funeral directors assistant, an officiatr, a funeral director, and a funeral directors assistant. I have a degree in divinity from Regis University and have served as an Associate Minister of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Diocese of Las Vegas in the last several years. I have also been a member of the American Red Cross for many years.
This week I joined several others in attending the funeral of a gay couple and their partner since I am a very active member of the Church. We will be the only people attending a gay funeral with no family members and no close friends. I thought we were being very supportive of the family, but the funeral director said, “We don’t care about the family, we care about the funeral.
I know this is a big deal, but to me it is a pretty simple concept. A gay or lesbian funeral is a funeral for a gay or lesbian person, because they are the only people who will be there to see this individual’s legacy. It is a funeral for their life and not just for their death. It is a funeral for their unique life and not just for their death. It is a funeral for their individuality and not just for their death.
This brings us to the question of how to go about a funeral for a gay or lesbian person. One of the best ways to do this is at a church. A funeral director told us that he personally likes to see an array of caskets, with a rainbow in each one. Funerals will be held in a church, so this is the first time I’ve been to a funeral home since I was in college.
The fact that a funeral home is an important part of a funeral is certainly a plus, as you can see from the video. After we were done in the chapel, we were taken to a small chapel in the back of the funeral home. The chapel had a stage with a video camera, a microphone, and a loudspeaker. Then, the service began.
Funerals are important. Even if you’ve been to a funeral, you’ve probably noticed that it has a special feel. The music, the flowers, the candles, the coffin. These are all things that are important to the person who’s been there.
There’s a long list of things a funeral will be, and many of these things are things that are important to you. But funeral directors will also be making choices. Some are more important than others. For a traditional funeral, it might be a hymn, a hymnal, or a reading. For an eulogy, it might be a eulogy, a sermon, a poem, and a hymn.
