The Winter Solstice, December 21st, is the shortest day of the year. The Winter Solstice is the day when we face the long darkness and remember that each day ahead will see increasing light.
For those who are grieving, the Winter Solstice can be a reminder that hope follows loss
just as light follows darkness.
The funeral home will be lit with luminaries in memory of your loved ones. You are welcome to stop in
our Chapel to pay silent tribute and take a candle as a remembrance and as a symbol of light to come.
