“Grief is the feeling of reaching out for someone who’s always been there, only to discover when I need her [or him] one more time, she’s no longer there.”
When someone you care about dies, it is one of life’s most painful events….perhaps even the MOST painful event you might experience. Our reaction to death is many faceted and extremely difficult to discuss. In many circumstances, those engulfed in grief are left alone to cope with their pain...especially after the initial couple of weeks have passed.Learn More
During the funeral service, common sense and empathy for those grieving are expected in today’s society.

We have put together a guide to help display caring and appropriate behavior, giving you the confidence in knowing your gestures are well received and in good form.Learn More
