About Eternal Peace Funeral Services

From our darkest moment, a bright light shined to guide us home  

 

Adeline Bui, a Vietnamese immigrant, came to America with her parents when she was 7 years old.  Her father taught her that in America, the land of opportunities, you could achieve your dreams and desires if you work hard and persevere.  Adeline carried that knowledge and listened to father's advice throughout her life.  Her father was always her inspiration and she inherited much of his entrepreneurial spirit, collaborating on many businesses together.  

During the pandemic of 2020, her father experienced 2 strokes that ultimately took his life in late June 2020.  In her darkest moment, a bright light shined.  Her beloved father's death was not an end of his life, but a beginning of his legacy that lives in Adeline and her children. 

She mourned his death and the experience of planning a funeral in the midst of a deadly pandemic made family and friends unable to come together to celebrate his life. 

Eternal Peace Funeral Services was conceived from Adeline's darkest moment.  Her beloved father's unexpected death shined the light on an opportunity to help many grieving families when faced with a loved one’s death.  She understands mourning a parent’s death and not being able to follow the Vietnamese traditions.  She noticed that all families have to make adjustments to their funeral arrangements because all of the funeral services in Austin are geared towards the average American.  Adeline understands the complications of planning due to the language and cultural barriers.  She had to make many adjustments for her father’s funeral not only due to these limitations but also what was important for a Vietnamese family. 

 

She immediately realized that the Asian communities need a business that understands the importance of traditions when it comes to mourning a loved one.  Communications are crucial to ensure that all your wishes are met when planning one of the most important services of your life. 

 

At Eternal Peace Funeral Services, we have staff representing most of the Asian communities to help plan, prepare, and execute all your wishes and to be a light to help you navigate through your darkest moment. 

You are not alone...

The loss of a loved one is life's most stressful event and can cause a major emotional crisis.  You are not alone.  

It is not easy to cope after a loved one dies. You will mourn and grieve. Mourning is the natural process you go through to accept a major loss. Mourning may include religious traditions honoring the dead or gathering with friends and family to share your loss. Mourning is personal and may last months or years.

Grieving is the outward expression of your loss. Your grief is likely to be expressed physically, emotionally, and psychologically. For instance, crying is a physical expression, while depression is a psychological expression. It is very important to allow yourself to express these feelings. Often, death is a subject that is avoided, ignored, or denied. At first, it may seem helpful to separate yourself from the pain, but you cannot avoid grieving forever. Someday those feelings will need to be resolved or they may cause physical or emotional illness.

Many people report physical symptoms that accompany grief. Stomach pain, loss of appetite, intestinal upsets, sleep disturbances, and loss of energy are all common symptoms of acute grief.  Of all life's stresses, mourning can seriously test your natural defense systems. Existing illnesses may worsen or new conditions may develop.

Profound emotional reactions may occur. These reactions include anxiety attacks, chronic fatigue, depression, and thoughts of suicide. An obsession with the deceased is also a common reaction to a death.

At Eternal Peace Funeral Services, we work with many professionals to help guide you through this dark time.
