Memory Woods Memorial Tree Program
In 2000, our Funeral Home implemented a Memorial Tree Planting Program in partnership with Memory Woods Canada. A tree will be planted in memory of your loved one. We hope that in some small way, the planting of this tree can bring you some comfort at this difficult time.
Community Grief Support Groups
Every Tuesday morning and evening, our Funeral Home offers a time for you to share your grief with a professional grief counsellor and others in a caring and confidential environment. Each week has a discussion topic, followed by a question, answer and sharing period. Anyone in the community who feels they would benefit from these sessions, is welcome to attend.
Blue Christmas - Candlelight Service
Early in the Holiday Season, we will be holding our annual, non-denominational Service to help those whom we have served get through the often difficult times of the Holiday Season. You will be given an opportunity to light a candle and place a blue bulb on our Christmas tree in memory of your loved one.
As part of the services we provide, we are proud to include all of the above programs free of charge to the families that we serve.
