The Purpose
The Christmas season is a time of the year that most people really look forward to and enjoy. There is nothing like being with the ones you love during the most wonderful and magical time of the year. However, there are some families whose Christmas’ will not be the same this year. Someone they love is missing from the dinner table this year. There is a Christmas card that won’t be given or received this year, or the next. There is a laugh missing, a hug whose warmth they won’t feel. For those who have lost someone they love over the past year and even years gone before, grief is often intensified during this time. Many people often hide their pain because they don’t want to ruin the joy that everyone else around them is experiencing. Those extended family and friends are often afraid to bring up the deceased because they are afraid to upset anyone.
For the last 20 years Our Funeral Homes have been hosting a Candlelight Service of Remembrance. We understand that the Holiday season is difficult for those who are grieving, and we wanted to give them an opportunity during the season to acknowledge and express their grief. It is also a great opportunity for the community to come together and remind the bereaved that they are not alone. During our service we have many different community members, community leaders and community clergy come and participate. We have everyone light a Candle of Remembrance of their loved one in a beautiful moment of silence. We also create a Memorial Tribute of those who have passed away in the last year. Afterwards we invite everyone to a time of refreshment and memories. Our communities have both really appreciated this service every year and the services are always well attended.
Christmas is a time where everyone comes together, and when you have lost a dear loved one; that is when you need to be surrounded with care and love the most.
The Candlelight Service of Remembrance will be held on Sunday, December 3th, 2017 at the Chapel of the Rocky Mountain House Funeral Home at 2:00 pm. All are welcome to attend and participate.
