Every person must cope with loss of a loved on his or her own terms. The emotional upheaval these trying times can cause is sometimes so overwhelming that even the support of friends and family may not help relieve the amount of sadness and grief you feel.
At Miller - Moster - Robbins Funeral Home we offer the following aftercare grief sessions:
Aftercare In Home Follow Up
Members of our staff are available to make a private in home visit or to meet members of the immmediate family in private at the funeral home at your convenience anytime following the funeral services of a loved one. This visit provides the survivors an opportunity to ask questions, share comments and obtain additional helpful information and request additional supplies. To arrange a private meeting please call the funeral home and ask to speak with George or Steve.
Aftercare Resource Library
Helpful books and pamphlets that cover a wide range of helpful topics are made available free of charge to anyone in our community. The books are on loan at the funeral home for an extended period of time and copies of the pamphlets can be received upon request.
Annual Holiday Memorial Service
Traditionally held on the first Saturday of December, everyone in the community who has lost a loved one is invited to attend this special remembrance service as we honor the memories of those who have died. A Memory Tree is decorated by survivors with ornaments personalized with the name of loved ones, area clergy share helpful insights, traditional Christmas carols are sung and refreshments are enjoyed by everyone present.
