Compassion

Even during times of social distancing, anyone who has suffered a loss deserves love and support. Though gathering sizes are currently limited, there are still many safe ways to show friends and family that you care.

How to Support a Family After Loss:

  • Call, Text or Video Chat: It would mean a lot to hear from you, even for just a few moments. Try to video chat via FaceTime or Skype if possible, as the expression on your face can often say so much more than words.
  • Share Socially: Our online obituaries are always available and kept up to date. Share them socially to keep those in your circle informed and include one of your personal memories with the post.
  • Sign Online Guestbook: Leave your condolences online in a safe, permanent space. With every service, we provide online guestbooks free of charge so that families can easily collect photos, kind words and treasured moments.
  • Send “Hugs from Home“:  These hugs will provide the family with comfort during this time of social distancing so they will know that many others are there with them in spirit. Send one to a family now.
