Grief Resources

A Celebration of Life or Homegoing service for your loved one is a first step in the grieving process. During this time, family members and friends have an opportunity to say their goodbyes, share fond memories, and comfort one another.

In the days, weeks and months following the service, people continue to need others to lean on for understanding, emotional support, encouragement and guidance. Local and national support groups are available to help during this time of transition.

These groups provide a comforting and supportive environment for expressing emotions through each phase of the grieving process. To learn more about grief support services, click on the links below. You may also discuss grief counseling and support options with one of our funeral directors.
