Most would think that a funeral homes service would end at the final disposition of the deceased. This is when our funeral home makes that difference. We suggest several people with different qualifications. There is Bereavement Support or One on One Therapy.

Bereavement Support is group therapy with people that are going through a similar situation as you are. You have several groups within Bereavement Support.
