Annual Candlelight Remembrance Service

First Sunday of December

Every year we hold an Annual Candlelight Remembrance Service to honor the families that we have served during the past year. The event includes an open house with refreshments following the event. Everyone who has experienced a death is welcome to attend. Some families come back year after year. We even extend the invitation to those who have lost loved ones, but used another funeral home. 

We start the event on Thanksgiving weekend, by putting up a Christmas tree in the lobby and encourage families to come and place an ornament personalized with their loved one's name. On the afernoon of the Candlelight Service, we have some entertainment by various entertainers and a local minister brings an encouraging message before lighting the candles. It's a lot of hard work, but our staff, along with our family, enjoys this time very much, as we want to encourage those that are still strugging with their loss. We want them to know that they are not alone. We care very deeply and appreciate the priviledge to have served them.
