Service of Remembrance

During the Holiday Season, we invite members of the community to attend a Holiday Service of Remembrance held in the chapel of the funeral home.

Our goal with hosting the Service of Remembrance is to help those who attend, to leave the chapel with a feeling of peace and a sense of knowing how to face the holidays after their loss.

During the community service, a member of the clergy community leads the service, which brings tears to many eyes. Bell choirs, harpists, beautiful voices, and wonderful words of healing are shared as a line of luminaries glow outside of the facility. The site is truly breathtaking, and all in remembrance of loved ones lost throughout the year. As the evening comes to an end, family members are invited to light a candle in memory of their loved one as their name is said for everyone to hear. Finally, everyone comes together by joining a harpist in the song "Silent Night."

Following the service, families are welcome to visit as refreshments are served and ornaments are gifted to each family who has lost a loved one within the past twelve months. The evening always brings a sense of comfort to those attending, as well as the staff hosting the service, when they can experience again, the importance of keeping the memory of a loved one alive and close to our hearts.

The room is filled with a feeling like none other. Among those taken back by their emotions, is always the entire staff. Although it is very difficult for many to come through the front door at the funeral home again, it is so very heartwarming to see each and every family we serve come back at the end of the year to again celebrate the life of their loved one, and to hold onto the memory of them.

With this special time, the staff at the funeral home strives to give others a new strength to face the holidays alone. Our staff states, "This is not a ‘job’ to us, but rather a privilege and an honor to be asked to help them in their time of need. Each family has a place in our hearts."
