Join our Grief Support Group


 Dear Friends,

The staff at Daniels Family Funeral Home would like to invite you to participate in a grief support program we are offering, for those experiencing grief and loss.  The need for ongoing support is crucial in your healing and realizing what your “new normal” is, without your loved one. The quality and quantity of understanding support you get during your grief journey will have a major influence on your capacity to heal.  You cannot -nor should you try to - do this alone.  Drawing on the experience and encouragement of friends, fellow mourners, or professional counselors is not a weakness but a healthy human need. And because mourning is a process that takes place over time, this support must be available months, even years after the death of someone in your life. When someone you love dies, it can be hard to understand your often complex and painful thoughts and feelings.

We are offering the programs “The Journey of Grief” written by author Doug Manning and "Understanding Your Grief" by author Alan Wolfelt. The programa are intended to companion you, on your own unique grief journey.

The program will take place at the Cross Lutheran Church, 126 Chapel Terrace, Burlington.   We will meet at 6:30PM on the last Tuesday of the month starting January 27, 2015.  The program itself is free, and if you choose to use the book and journal, they can be purchased through us. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at either our Burlington 763-3434 or Union Grove 878-2011 offices.
