Expressing Condolences During the COVID 19 Crisis

Dear friends, neighbors and members of our local and distant communities,

When a death happens, we are most familiar with attending a service to show our support for our grieving family member  or friend. It is this most meaningful time where we gather to heal and experience some type of closure from that life that was well-lived. Presently, all of us are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, in a manner that we have never experienced before.  The funeral service guidelines have shifted as a part of the CDC’s recommendation of “social distancing,.” Services and funerals are now limited to 50% capacity per the CDC. However, memorials can always be planned for a later date when the CDC has lifted these restrictions. Planning a funeral service is a challenge that most find overwhelming, Moreover, we continue to provide support and guidance in a comforting and compassionate manner through this process despite all the newest regulations. 

Ways to show you care without attending a service -
