Open Casket vs Closed Casket

For some people, arranging a funeral always poises the concern of whether an open casket or a closed casket would be the most appropriate for the service. Although there are certainly circumstances where a closed casket is the only option that should be considered, it can be more difficult to determine which option is more suitable in situations where the body may be well preserved or it may be an elderly loved one, such as a parent or grandparent. In these times, it’s important to think of your options respectfully and consider how it may affect other people in the long run.

In example, a funeral where there may be a lot of children present, such as for a grandparent or an older relative, having a closed casket may be more suitable. It’s difficult for children to differentiate the deceased loved one at the funeral service from the one that they have become so accustomed to during their lifetime; therefore, you don’t want the main memory that the child has of the loved one to be that image of how they looked at the funeral services. For children and very emotional individuals, sometimes it’s best to have closed casket services so that they can remember their loved ones as they were when they were still alive and present.

Surely, there are circumstances where having an open casket is fine, however. Some people are able to gain more closure when they are dealing with an open casket service. They get to have one final look at their loved one and pay their respects. For some people, it’s very difficult for them to do this at a closed casket service because it’s hard for them to visualize their loved one being gone. There are many people who attend funeral services purely for the closure aspect of saying goodbye to someone they loved during their lifetime.

Talking with the funeral director or the staff can provide you with more insight into whether or not you should consider having an open or closed casket service. Sometimes this is based purely on the preservation of your loved one’s body; sometimes it’s easier to have a closed casket service if you feel that your loved one’s body isn’t in good enough condition to present to attendees of the service. However, there is much that funeral services are able to do in terms of preservation these days, so having an open casket service is generally an option in most circumstances. Ultimately, it depends on what you and your family will be comfortable with viewing the most.

I think that open caskets are the best.Because you know that they're peaceful,And you can say your final godbyes.But with a closed casket,you don't know that they're peaceful.Or get to say your finnal goodbyes.So,I think that open caskets are the best.
