Grief and the Holidays

The holiday season is typically full of joy and love, everyone looks forward to them all year long. However, when you lose someone you love, you may find yourself being torn between wanting to be joyful and yet dreading the reality of the holidays without your loved one. 

With this in mind, we are honored to provide holiday grief classes. These groups focus on providing a safe place to express feelings, remember your loved one, and to think together about what it means to move towards healing and finding hope in the future. Classes begin Wednesday October 16thFor more information, and to register, click here.

This year marks our 32nd Annual Holiday Remembrance Programs at each of their funeral home chapels to honor the community’s loved ones. 

These four programs are free, open to the public, and gives families the opportunity to grieve in peace the death of their loved ones during the holiday season. We honor loved ones with a name reading ceremony accompanied by music and candle lighting memorial.
