Remember... Every life is significant. Every life has a story to be told. Let us help tell your story.

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." 

Matthew 5:4

Grief, a painful, normal, human response to significant loss, is ever so unique, as the worst kind of grief is yours. Every relationship holds a special and unique significance to us, that is why grief is so personal.  Everyone grieves in their own, unpredictable way and on their own schedule and it will be finished when it’s finished. “He who has no time to mourn, has no time to mend.” The best advice anyone can give is to feel what you feel and know you will get through this. 

As you travel on this journey, know that you have friends and professional guides in us; you are never alone.  Remember effective grief work is not done alone…. we will be your guide and are here to listen, understand, and care for you and your family with the upmost tenderness and compassion. We are devoted to make this difficult time as dignified and cost effective as possible; to honor a life lived. Most importantly, the specific needs of your family are met with dignity and respect, exceeding your expectations. Our calling is to walk with you through your journey and to provide you with exceptional service and compassionate care; being intricate in helping you cope and eventually heal from your brokenness.~He sent me to heal the brokenhearted. (Luke 4:18)

We offer a wide range of service options, tailored to your individual needs, wishes, finances and faiths.

I hope you will allow me to walk alongside you through your grief journey-not as an expert, but as a companion who has seen much of the terrain.  My heart goes out to you.  There are no magical words to bring an end to grief.  I wish that there were, but I hope I am able to give you comfort, support, strength and encouragement.  

 Please feel free to call upon us at any time. We are always available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to discuss any of your current or future needs, over the phone, at your home or ours.
