The holiday season is upon us. A joyous time? Sure, for many. Not so joyous for many others. Please know that if you have experienced the death of a loved one this year, you are in our thoughts and prayers. This will undoubtedly be a tough season for you – and that’s alright! First and foremost, take care of yourself. Don’t worry about traditions, don’t worry about parties and the like, if you don’t feel up to it. Just like the tangled strand of lights with this post – it’s okay to be a “mess” this year – and the next, and many next after that, if that’s what it takes. Remember, grief doesn’t have a timetable. Each person grieves in their own way, and that’s okay!

We here at Roper & Sons want to offer you a safe place to grieve. You are welcome to attend any of our grief group sessions – even if you did not have your loved one’s service with us! On December 11th, we will offer a very special Remembrance Service, honoring those who have passed away throughout this year. We welcome you to join us!

All of our grief programs are held at 2 p.m. on Sundays. You can contact us at 402-476-1225.
