Coping With The Holidays

Nov 7, 2016 06:30 PM to Nov 7, 2016 08:30 PM

Facing the holiday season following the death of a loved one can be difficult. For you and your family, trying to decide what traditions to keep and which ones might be too painful to follow this year may seem like an impossible task. Coping with your grief may take so much energy that you may not have much left over to make decisions about how to observe the holidays. Where to go, what to do, decorating a tree, sending out cards, shopping for gifts-it may all seem like too much.


To assist you and your family as you decide what traditions are important to continue and how you will observe Thankgiving, Christmas and New Year's, we offer a program that will suggest options for you as you begin to plan the holidays with your family and friends. Ways to remember you loved one throughout the season as well as sugeestions for working through your grief will also be shared.


For more information or to RSVP, contact Vicki Lensing at Lensing Funeral & Cremation Service, 319-338-8171.
