Children and Grief

Grieving children will often talk through or play out their concerns or fears if provided with a safe, supportive and creative environment, which is why we have dedicated a room in the funeral home to the children, designed especially for their needs.  

When a child experiences grief, we are here to help you find the words to discuss death and dying with your child. Our staff is very dedicated the children of our community, and will take every opportunity to provide healing support and understanding to every child in need.  The two following programs are very close to our hearts and we hope that you will take the time to learn more about them, and to take advantage of them if the need arises in your family..
