The Family Arena
The approaching holiday season, for some, can bring a sense of sadness, loneliness, and emptiness. Holidays can result in a renewed sense of grief as memories of traditions and time spent together begin to resurface.
The Family and Staff at Baue Funeral Homes, Crematory & Cemetery offer events that provide a safe environment for families to remember their loved ones during the holiday season with others who are experiencing the same feelings. These programs give families the freedom to embrace those memories and to honor their loved ones.
On October 17th, 2017 Baue is sponsoring a complimentary Community Grief Seminar hosted by nationally renowned Bereavement Counselor and the Founder and Director of the Center for Loss and Life Transition in Colorado, Dr. Alan Wolfelt. He will educate attendees on: “Exploring Death, Grief, and Mourning.”
