A Message to the Community During the COVID-19 Pandemic

For anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing has been more than just an inconvenience. It has likely prevented them from being with their loved one at the end of life and limited their options for gathering to mourn and say goodbye. During this challenging time, the one constant is that funeral directors are here, to help families and communities heal, guiding loved ones in finding meaningful ways to say goodbye.


Funeral Directors Helping Communities Heal After Tragedy

In times of immense loss following a mass-fatality tragedy, funeral directors help families begin to grieve. They also help our communities heal – because tragic loss impacts all of us and calls on us to help and support one another as we begin the grief journey, together.


 Value of Funerals & Funeral Directors

When someone dies, we have a funeral because it helps us. It’s for those of us who are still here, who need to grieve. It doesn’t need to be like the funerals we’ve experienced before. It can be a beautiful reflection of a life well-lived.
