Grief Support Resources
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 Pray Funeral Home we offer the following aftercare grief sessions:
- Pray's Monthly Support Group
We conduct a monthly support group through Maximum Living Associates with our Staff Grief Counselor Mary Adkins here at Pray Funeral Home. The gathering is usually the fourth Monday of each month at 6:00 PM. Please check our Community Events Calendar for this month's schedule.
