For those of you who have already pre-planned with us and for those of you who have loved ones interred here, when was the last time you checked in with us regarding your records?
We find that oftentimes people move, change phone numbers or open new email accounts, but don’t think to forward that new information along to us. With all the places you need to notify, that is understandable! It’s important that we have accurate and up-to-date contact information on file for you. Please call our office at (508) 791-0350 if you would like to check to see what we have on file or if you need to update your records. We can also answer any questions that you may have. Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
This is indeed a beautiful gesture! It also offers an important lesson for all of us, about making sure we appreciate our loved ones each day.
"Bailey Sellers' father, Mike Sellers, died of Stage IV pancreatic cancer in 2013, just a few months before her 17th birthday. But her dad made sure he could still celebrate her special day, even in death. Before his death he prepaid a flower shop to deliver flowers and a card to her every year on her birthday."
Today's technology allows us to memorialize our loved ones in special ways. Each person interred at the park has his or her own web page, which can easily be found by entering their name in our searchable database. These virtual memorials can include obituaries, photos, and tributes to honor family and friends. You can also sign guest books, order flowers, find maps to grave sites, and more.
"No mere turn of the calendar can dictate that we suddenly move from ‘why did this happen,’ to ‘how will I go on’ - from disbelief and shock, to the reality of life without our loved one. Grief is not a straight line experience - it defies the rhythmic structure of ordinary time. Rather, grief creates its own calendar, the days and weeks of our pain and sorrow etched forever in our heart by every breath and act of remembrance that honors the life of the one we now grieve."
This blog, and the website in general, is a wonderful resource that provides comfort, encouragement and support to those who are navigating their way through the grieving process and back into a life filled with hope and happiness. We grieve because we love, and it can be rewarding to be a part of a community during that transition time. Our Good Grief social group for widows and widowers was developed with that in mind. The annual GG Holiday Party takes place on January 19th at the Spencer Country Inn. We invite you to come and start the new year in a positive way. If you are interested, please RSVP by January 10th, by calling Scott at 774-276-1751
