GriefSupport has been on our hearts for a long time; we are so excited to offeraftercare support to our community. We don't want our services to be limited tojust the families we serve at our funeral home, but to anyone that needs ahelping hand or shoulder to lean on. We want to be advocates for support andaftercare for everyone in our community.
Every loss affects us differently, we need the help of others to starthealing. Our gatherings will focus on different types of loss, but no matterthe focus, all are welcome to come listen, share, and start to heal.
Grief is something that is not talked about often enough, it's almosthidden away making healing much more difficult to do our own. Our hope is tohelp the people of our community navigate through the complexities of healingwhile leaning on others that are going through the same thing.
We will be holding meetings every other Thursday from 6:00-7:00. We willoffer fellowship, snacks, a listening ear, and welcoming hearts. This is aservice that we are honored to offer, we want all to feel welcome to come at no cost.
In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve, we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
