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 Neal & Summers Mortuary we offer the following aftercare grief sessions:

»  Center for Loss & Life Transition
Dedicated to furthering our understanding of and compassion for the complex set of emotions we call grief. A private organization helping both the bereaved, by walking with them in their unique life journeys, and bereavement caregivers, by serving as their educational liaison and professional forum.
