Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One
"As Funeral Directors, it is our calling to help comfort and console every family we serve. Grief and the associated crisis is a lifelong event that needs to be tended to. We do provide that long term support to families that ask for help. All of this does not mean funerals must be sad, somber and dark events. A funeral is to help family and friends say goodbye to someone they loved in a meaningful way. This can be through traditional or nontraditional means. The funeral serves a purpose. It helps those same family and friends take the first steps to realize that someone they love and who made a mark on their lives is gone. As a society we are continually working to avoid the hard things in life. Sometimes working through the difficult things makes us stronger and more well rounded people." [Jay Sperling in "The Independent" magazine.]

the wake of incidents like those in New York, Boston, and now, Orlando, there
comes a time when the help is gone and the lives of those who survived the
attack, or those who had people die in the attack must go on. The question is
always raised, “How can you go on after something like that?” Grief reactions
for those left behind can be extremely severe, exceeding what one would
classify as “normal grief”.
