  • Helping parents during time of grief

    When parents receive the happy news of a new baby coming, their thoughts probably first go to sharing the announcement with family and friends. Then on to cribs, strollers, diapers, getting a nursery together and preparing the baby’s older siblings to the arrival of a new member to the family.

    It is a blessed and happy time for all. Preparations are many – making the thought of preparing for a funeral the last thing on anyone’s mind.
