Grief Support

We are creating a memorial grieving path for families to come and reflect.  A place to stop and remember.  Remember their loved one, offer up a prayer for them, just share a moment of reflection.  Our intention at the funeral home is to offer families memroial plaques that can be used like headstones to memorialize their loved ones.  As wwe become a more portable society, we need a way to remember, a way to keep our departed loved ones with us, near to us.  Our hope is that this path will in some small way make it possible for the families in our community to do just that--celebrate the lives of our loved ones gone ahead.
